As an independent charity, Nightingale relies on the generosity of the Jewish community. While some of our residents are supported by Local Authority funding, others are paying the cost of their own care – often when they cannot afford to contribute the total amount. Nightingale always makes up the deficit. We never turn people away on the grounds of finances, thus we are largely dependent on support from our friends. We are grateful to all of our volunteers and committees who plan fundraising events, take part in physical challenges and generate support in their local areas
Nightingale is an entirely independent charity which cares for 200 older members of the Jewish community, many of whom live with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, and other disabilities.
Nightingale is largely reliant on the payments from Local Authorities on behalf of residents and payments directly from those residents who do not qualify for Local Authority funding. These sources of finance fall short of the cost of running the Home at the high standard that residents expect and have become accustomed.
The Charity receives no funding from any statutory source for capital building projects to improve and upgrade residents' facilities.
As residents become ever frailer so the amount of specialist nursing equipment that is needed also increases, together with the numbers of nursing staff required, Nightingale receives no direct funding to purchase and maintain such equipment.
Nightingale depends on the community for its support and we are very grateful to you for helping us to care.
