Why work with us

Our teams of healthcare professionals, nurses, dementia nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, engagement specialists, maintenance, housekeeping, porters and administration staff are all part of one team. Each team member works together to support the delivery of best care for each of our residents.

Our homes

Nightingale Hammerson comprises two care homes, Nightingale House in Clapham and Hammerson House, Wohl Campus in Hampstead.

We are an independent charity that has been serving older members of the Jewish community for 180 years.

We began serving the community in the east end of London in 1840 and moved to Wandsworth in 1904 when Nightingale House was donated to the charity by Lord Wandsworth. In 2012, we merged with Hammerson House to become Nightingale Hammerson.

Today, we provide 150 bedrooms at Nightingale House and a further 116 bedrooms at Hammerson House, Wohl Campus. We offer the very highest level of care to our residents, within a safe, compassionate and stimulating environment. Our care incorporates residential, nursing, dementia, respite and palliative care. Our homes are divided into separate households, which specialise in each care provision, providing a team of dedicated care professionals.


Our homes are stimulating places to work and we have a strong, supportive and friendly culture.  As well as our competitive salary, our employee benefit programme also offers:

  • Pension contribution

Rose, Care Services Co-ordinator

Being an in-house therapy team, and one large family, makes all the difference to working together across our professions. We get to know residents individually and we tailor their therapies together. Our focus is on living well, enabling residents to do and participate in what is important and has meaning for them. This is hugely rewarding and what we all love.
