Traditions and rituals respected
Residents’ spiritual needs are thoughtfully and respectfully met with the support of our religious co-ordinator Rafi Fuchs and our own synagogue. If residents wish to use the synagogue but are too frail or poorly, Rafi will visit them in their room or unit to minister to their spiritual needs.
We celebrate Shabbat and all major Jewish holidays and festivals, so that residents can celebrate them with family and friends, just as they did before coming to Nightingale Hammerson.
“Services are very spiritual and every resident is encouraged to participate as they can. Rafi is so supportive and inclusive to everyone and caters for everyone’s needs.”Family of resident Monty Lurie
In February 2017 we held our annual and well-attended Celebration of Life, to mark the lives of former residents who are no longer with us.
