The Wohl Foundation’s Support of Nightingale Hammerson

It has been almost a year since Nightingale Hammerson, with the help of The Wohl Foundation, created the Hammerson House Wohl Campus. Located in the Hampstead Garden Suburb, this initiative offers residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care for older members of the Jewish community. The facility is equipped with 116 bedrooms, social and communal areas, and woodland gardens. This is not the first time that Nightingale Hammerson and the Wohl Foundation have collaborated, together they established the Wohl Wing — a specifically designed dementia-friendly wing at the charity’s first care home, Nightingale House, based in Clapham.

Nightingale Hammerson benefits from The Wohl Legacy’s continued support

London-based care charity, Nightingale Hammerson, has been able to expand and grow its services, thanks to its ongoing partnership with The Wohl Foundation.

The Wohl Legacy was part of the largest fundraising drive to redevelop the Hammerson House site in Hampstead Garden Suburb and create the Wohl Campus, to provide residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care for the community. The property offers space, safety and comfort to its residents in the form of 116 state-of-the-art-bedrooms, social and communal areas and woodland gardens.

Having worked with the charity for many years, The Wohl Legacy has a long-standing relationship with Nightingale Hammerson. Previous funding has already helped to deliver dementia and nursing care through the Wohl Wing — a specifically designed dementia-friendly wing at the charity’s first care home, Nightingale House, based in Clapham. Nightingale House is within the top 1% of care homes within the UK, and the only Jewish care home to be recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.

Melvin Lawson, Chairman of Nightingale Hammerson, said: “Quite simply, we could not offer all that we do at Nightingale Hammerson without The Wohl Legacy. We offer our heartfelt gratitude to The Wohl Legacy for their long and continued support. We know there are countless families who will forever be thankful for the care of their loved ones in our homes. The foundation enables us to continue our work and offer the highest level of care to all older people within the community, should they ever need us.”

Professor David Latchman, Chairman of the Trustees of the Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation, said: “The work carried out by the team at Nightingale Hammerson, both at Nightingale House and now at Hammerson House, is vital to our community, and we are delighted to be able to help them with this.

“Many individuals and their families across London are already being supported by their life-changing work, and the additional accommodation will help them to extend their offering to many more people in need.”
