About The Retired Nurses National Home

RNNH (The Retired Nurses National Home) specialises in care for people with dementia and residential care. RNNH welcomes everyone, originally built for the retired nursing community RNNH retains its heritage through its own archive of nursing history. 

RNNH communal spaces include a cosy lounge and a bright and airy dining room where residents can enjoy a meal with fellow residents, visiting family and friends. Most rooms at RNNH overlook the beautiful gardens with its seating areas and raised garden beds.

Respite care packages are also available at RNNH for people who need everyday care and support when their own carers need a respite break themselves, or for people who need extra care and support during a recuperation period after an illness or hospital discharge.
