Nightingale offers residents a home for life, providing total security and peace of mind regardless of how much their physical or mental health may deteriorate.
Nightingale, originally known as The Home for Aged Jews, was formed by an amalgamation of The Widows Home Asylum and The Hand-in-Hand Asylum in Wells Street, Hackney, in the East End of London in 1895. Both these asylums dated back to 1840.
Nightingale moved to its current site in Clapham, South West London following a gift of a building and grounds by Lord Wandsworth, the Viscount de Stern.
Nightingale is dedicated to providing quality care for older members of the Jewish community on a long-term or respite basis. Physical, intellectual, emotional, cultural, religious, social and artistic needs are catered for with sensitivity on an individual basis.
Nightingale is committed to ensuring privacy, dignity, independence and choice for residents and the very best practice in all aspects of their care.
