About Nightingale Hammerson

Nightingale Hammerson is an independent charity which has been serving the community for over 175 years.

Our two homes, Nightingale House in Clapham and Hammerson House in Hampstead Garden Suburb provide residential, nursing, respite, dementia and end-of-life care under one roof.

We welcome Jewish men and women (and their spouses) over the age of 60 from every part of the community. When the new Hammerson House service opens in 2020 we will be able to provide life-enhancing care to more than 300 residents.

Just over half of our residents are self-funding. For the remainder, each week we need to raise around £700 per resident to cover the full costs of their care, over and above the fees we receive from local authorities and families.

“A big heartfelt thank you for looking after my grandma.”


Our care staff do not wear uniform, to make the environment feel as much like home as possible.
