The history of our centre

Hannah Levy House Trust can look back on many years of care. Here are the key developments over the last few years.

 
Hannah Levy House is a Jewish care Home in Bournemouth, and it is run by Hannah Levy House Trust.
 
The home was run by The Jewish Welfare Board until the early 90's. It is now run by a board of 4 Trustee's who are all very involved in all aspects of the day to day running of Hannah Levy House.
The home has been operating for over 50 years, surviving ups and downs along the way. As a charity we have, with the support of all sphere's of the Jewish Community, both locally and nationally, and have managed to create a very special family orientated home.
 
Hannah Levy House has been established on the West Cliff area of Bournemouth since 1956.
 
Solomon Levy left a substantial amount of money to the Bournemouth Hebrew Community to purchase a large Victorain Home dedicated to the care of the elderly and infirmed. He held many discussions with Rabbi Indech and was specific in that the Jewish elderly should benefit from the home. This was also to enable Jewish residents of Bristol (the Levy home town) Bournemouth and surrounding areas to enjoy a stay at Hannah Levy House.
The home was named in honour of his late mother Hannah Levy.
