Work has begun on the £36m redevelopment of Nightingale Hammerson’s Hammerson House in North London.
The scheme will see capacity at the home increased to 116 residents with the provision of en suite rooms designed to meet a range of residential, advanced dementia and nursing care needs.
Bedrooms will be located within six households to encourage independence and choice for every resident.
Melvin Lawson, Chairman of Nightingale Hammerson, said: “We are delighted to be realising our exciting plans to redevelop Hammerson House, maintaining our long tradition of providing an exemplary standard of care for the Jewish community.
“Our vision is a modern, stimulating residential care facility where our residents will feel at home, with a warm welcome for visiting family and friends.”
President Harvey Rosenblatt added: “This is a significant day for Nightingale Hammerson and the beginning of something very special for our community’s older people.”
The new home’s design has been inspired by the woodland and natural light provided by its location in Hampstead Garden Suburb.
