“It is not an institution, it is more than a home, it is Home...”

(Daughter of resident)

Back in the 1980s, Mrs Ita Symons MBE sensed a growing need for a home for Orthodox Jewish people who were advancing in age, most of whom were Holocaust survivors.

Fuelled by compassion, Mrs Symons set out to achieve her mission, carrying this vital project through from its early conception to where it is today; a highly-acclaimed care scheme renowned for its combination of professionalism and warmth.

“If anyone asks me to recommend a Jewish Home, I will make sure to tell them what a wonderful place you have here.”

(D. L., Nurse Assessor)
