Join us on the 30th of June for our Summer Garden Party at Nightingale House

About us

Nightingale Hammerson is an independent charity and a leading specialist in the care of older people. We have served the Jewish community since 1840.

We know the importance and emotion that is placed on making a decision to move to a Care Home, either for yourself or for the one you love.

These pages will give an insight into our wonderful community and will enable you to learn more about our exceptional care and array of engagement programmes, giving everyone the opportunity to become involved.

Nightingale Hammerson comprises two Care Homes, Nightingale House in Clapham and Hammerson House, Wohl Campus, in Hampstead.  Our Homes are welcoming, warm and comfortable but they are also a hive of activity and enjoyment.   The care we offer is exceptional and our individually tailored approach to care offers a home-from-home for Residential, Nursing, Dementia, Respite and Palliative Care.

Together, our Homes care for over 250 Residents. Half of our Residents are self-funding and the remaining costs are covered by local authorities, family support or through our significant fundraising.

Nightingale House is the only Care Home for the Jewish community rated ‘Outstanding’ by CQC (2022).  We are delighted that our newly opened home, Hammerson House, Wohl Campus, has been awarded the rating of ‘Good’ in all categories.  Notably, CQC commented that we have ‘the seeds to reach ‘Outstanding’ at our next inspection’.
