Moving into a care home
Nightingale welcomes Jewish men and women over the age of 60 from every
part of the community. We can also accommodate couples who may have
differing care needs. Nightingale is split into three main sections; residential,
nursing and dementia care.
The Home is able to care for around 200 individuals and each resident has their
own private room with comfortable en-suite facilities, where the majority of care and support takes place.
Our approach is holistic and we are passionate about providing person-centred
care. To this end, every resident benefits from a wellbeing assessment within one week of arriving, to ensure that the staff can understand each individual’s
requirements. Nightingale strives to encourage independence and choice for
every resident, ensuring that they become fully integrated in Nightingale life, on
their own terms and according to their own needs.
We also understand how essential it is to offer emotional and practical support
to the families of our residents. We recognise the importance of settling a new
resident into the Home as quickly as possible, both for their benefit and for the
peace of mind of their loved ones.
Moving into a care home can be a difficult decision for residents and their
families but we have the experience and resources to ensure that this transition
is smooth. Our admissions procedure is streamlined and our Residents Services
Department ensures a continuous flow of communication between the potential
resident, their family and any professional agencies involved in the application
process. It is not unknown for new residents to be admitted on the same day on
which the first call for help is made by family or friends.
