Welcome to the Retired Nurses National Home (RNNH)
The RNNH is a residential care home in Bournemouth, Dorset, which is open to all. It is one of nine care homes run by the not-for-profit charity Friends of the Elderly. Our focus is to give older people in our care the chance to live fulfilled lives, whether they stay with us for a longer residential stay, or a short-term respite break.

About Retired Nurses National Home
Category: Residential care, Dementia care
The Retired Nurses National Home (RNNH) welcomes everyone, but retains a strong link to its heritage. Originally built for the benefit of the retired nursing community, we maintain our own archive of nursing history.
This stunning care home in Bournemouth is set amongst beautiful gardens, which most of the rooms overlook. Friends and family are always welcome to visit – and can share in the joy of a meal, sitting in the gardens or joining in with one of our activities.
We understand that everyone has different needs. That’s why we create a personalised care plan for each resident to ensure that those needs are met.
“I have worked in the care industry for 33 years and have been managing homes for 29 of those. I have worked in all areas of the care home from housekeeping to junior management – this is something I feel helps make me a good manager as I understand what is expected at every level.
My vision for the Retired Nurses National Home is to build on our current ‘Good’ CQC rating and continue to work to make this a homely, happy, caring and welcoming place to live and work.
I really enjoy making residents smile and listening to their life experiences. I am motivated by supporting older people who need our care and to show them the compassion and empathy that they deserve.”
