Mission Statement

About us

Nightingale Hammerson is an independent charity which has been serving the community for over 170 years. 


Nightingale Hammerson welcomes Jewish men and women over the age of 60 from every part of the community. Our three homes can also accommodate couples who may have differing care needs. Nightingale House offers residential, nursing and dementia care, whilst Hammerson House currently offers residential, nursing and assisted living accommodation. 


Nightingale Hammerson strives to provide excellent person centred care for all residents and currently employs almost 400 staff across three homes – Nightingale House in South West London, Hammerson House in North West London and Belmont Lodge in North East London.  All three homes offer excellent care facilities to older members of the Jewish community.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team who can help us to improve the excellent care we already provide.
