Education and research

The Network of Care Home Researchers and The Care Home Education Centre

The Network of Care Home Researchers (NoCHR) was founded to support research in Care Homes. Unique in approach, NoCHR meetings are held at our Homes, placing the Care Home at the centre of the network.

The network aims to:

  • Support and collaborate with both current and former researchers working with Nightingale Hammerson
  • Support Nightingale Hammerson through research to improve quality assurance and standards for its Residents and Staff
  • Develop research capabilities/resources within Nightingale Hammerson as the host organisation

If you would like to know more about NoCHR’s work or if you are interested in joining the network, please contact our Care Services Co-ordinator: 

Care Home Education Centre

The Care Home Education Centre (CHEC) at Nightingale Hammerson is a growing part of our ethos to provide a learning environment and to become a centre of excellence.

We have found that by investing in the education of each care role, constantly innovating each discipline and ensuring we induct every new Care Staff Member, that this is essential to our sustainability and for delivery of the best care.

We define CHEC as a learning, support and research environment which delivers compassionate care to older people with care needs.

Care Home Research Forum, 29th November 2023

We were delighted to host our third Care Home Research Forum on 29th November 2023 at Hammerson House, Wohl Campus.  The day was filled with presentations from experts and senior professionals from within the social care sector.  The audience, both in person and online, learned about the future of good care and the vital research currently taking place to support the future of good care for all older people.
