our care

The care of our residents is always our first priority at Nightingale Hammerson. We offer different levels of support, enabling residents to be cared for according to their specific needs. This includes residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care. We also offer respite care, which can support an individual following a stay in hospital or if support at home is temporarily unavailable.

We focus on a Relationship Centred Care approach, highlighting the importance of meeting the needs of the resident but also addresses the needs of relatives and care teams. We recognise that quality care only happens when there are strong relationships between everyone involved in a resident’s care.

nursing care

24 hour nursing care is available for residents with more complex health and care needs.  A care plan is devised to best support the holistic needs of each resident.   Residents, should they wish and are able, can still take part in our engagement activities and can enjoy many of the benefits that these bring.

We also care for those who are reaching their last days of life and can be looked after within a compassionate, caring environment that is homely and comfortable.

dementia care

Our care teams are trained to ensure they have an excellent understanding of the pathologies involved in dementia care.  They learn the skills needed to observe residents, their interactions with their surroundings and the impact the environment has on a resident living with dementia.   

Our dementia households are carefully designed to meet the sensory needs of residents living with dementia.  Every activity, engagement and interaction is carefully planned to meet their needs, all of whom will be at different stages of their journey living with dementia.

one-to-one care

One-to-one care is available, when required, for residents with complex health and social care needs, but also for companionship or therapeutic reasons.  One-to-one care will carry an additional cost.

our facilities

Nightingale House is a beautiful home, originally built in c.1865 and extended over the years to meet the needs of our community.   The house is set within stunning landscaped gardens that are a joy for residents to walk around or to sit and relax in the sunshine.  Weather permitting, we hold many an outdoor activities and the gardens give a real feel of being in the countryside.    

Medical services

Our onsite GP is available to all residents within our ground floor medical suite.  The GP will also visit residents in their rooms, if that is easier.   This service is also supported by our onsite pharmacy.

Therapies

We have one of the largest therapy teams situated within a care home setting in the UK, providing easily accessible occupational therapy, physiotherapy and moving and handling support.   Residents can benefit from therapies in our ground floor therapy department.  The team also visit the households and residents’ rooms directly, should this be more convenient for a resident.  In addition, the team offer exercise classes on the households and run a large ‘falls prevention programme’.

The garden café

The café is a sociable space for residents and for visiting friends and family.  We offer delicious, dairy meals and snacks as well as a good choice of coffees, teas and soft drinks.  Ice creams and ice lollies are also available for the visiting grandchildren and residents alike.    The garden café leads to an outside terrace and is a lovely spot to enjoy and view our beautiful gardens.

Synagogue
We are an inclusive Jewish home, respecting everyone’s religious traditions, as well as those who consider themselves non-religious, cultural Jews.   Our weekly Shabbat and festival services take place in our beautiful synagogue.   Services are led by our Religious Co-ordinator, Rafi, who will also bring these to the households if residents are unable to visit the synagogue.

Shopping
Run by our hugely dedicated and friendly volunteers, the onsite shop sells everyday essentials that residents may need, as well as small gifts.   

Hair salon
Our onsite hairdressing salon, which also provides manicures, is open to all residents.  The care teams are here to help with bookings, should a resident require some support.  The salon is a sociable hub where residents can be pampered and have a good chat over a cup of tea.
