At Nightingales Residential Home in Kidderminster, the health and safety of our residents, staff and visitors remains our priority. We have implemented robust procedures and policies as shared by the Care and Quality Commissioners and other care agencies.

We are working together with the Governments UK vaccination hubs and are pleased to announce that all residents and staff have now had their Covid-19 vaccinations. During the first initial lockdown, 10 of our dedicated staff moved into the home to protect all residents.
