Friends of One Tower Bridge Road

Southwark, London , SE1 4TR

The Friends of One Tower Bridge Road support the work of the home. Situated within walking distance of London’s Tower Bridge, One Tower Bridge care home is a purpose built 128 bedded care home offering Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Respite care.

The Friends aim to improve the quality of life of the residents of the care home by working with staff, residents and relatives.

The Friends of One Tower Bridge Road are looking to develop services on the site. We have found that this is particularly valued by some residents who through deteriorating health do not have the confidence to come out of their rooms. Alongside this we support the care homes’ activities’ coordinators by providing extra pairs of hands during organised activity sessions and outings.
