LOOKING AFTER OUR RESIDENTS AND STAFF – READ OUR COVID-19 UPDATE

Innovation

Nightingale Hammerson has a proven track record and strives to be a leader of innovative care, enhancing the lives of our residents.

intergenerational care

Nightingale House was the first UK care home to open an onsite nursery for children aged 2-5 years. There are daily programmes for our nursery children and residents to come together and join in fun and active things to do.  This could be baking bread, reading to one another, children performing in a concert or playing games with the residents.   Seeing everyone interact and be together is heart-warming and everyone really enjoys being in each other’s company.  Simply being together is engaging, friendships are made and our residents’ well-being is greatly enhanced.   

impact

In 2019 we published our findings of a study that measured the impact of the daily intergenerational programme on the well-being of our elderly care home residents.   It found that the intergenerational sessions alleviate symptoms of loneliness and depression, stimulates the brain in different ways and lifts the spirits of all involved. Here is the executive summary and the full report.
