Welcome To Dignity House



A place where people are restored, improved, and empowered to live a life worth living. Dignity House is located in a residential setting on a hill where the beauty of the northern side of the island is seen. It provides a clear view of the azure blue ocean and a feeling of tranquility. The surrounding white rooftops with splashes of colors of homes and green trees all year round, balmy breezes, – together provide a place to heal the mind.

Our Story

Together, we have over 50 years of Nursing experience. Public Health and Psychiatric Nursing. I did not think it would work, primarily because there was nothing else that mirrored mental health rehabilitation in Bermuda. There was a series of professional events that caused us to review what Bermuda had in the area of rehabilitation for those with mental health challenges.

While working in Public health, I encountered an individual who lived in the most undignified manner. It was difficult to find a home with mental health support. From that experience, I spoke with my husband about the frustration of trying to house the individual. He shared his U.K. experience working in mental health rehabilitation. He saw that people were successful and were able to live in the community with support after learning certain tools to help maintain their mental health. Locally, we observed the revolving door syndrome. People treated for acute mental health illness return to acute care after 4 or more months and at times sooner. We also spoke with our peers in health care. There was a definite gap in our mental health care that needed to be filled.

Nicholas and I prayed to God for direction, researched, and decided to step out in faith. Dignity House has been open since March 2022. Our first resident started in May 2022 and we have been busy assisting people in accepting their mental health challenges and changing, living their best life. God be praised for the work implemented in Dignity House for what we are currently doing. We are grateful to those who believe in what we are doing and for their support. We have to mention the Ignite Program. They have taught us how to operate as a business and also provide jobs for others – particularly those who have graduated from our program. We have been transformed from nurses to nurses who have a business in mental health rehabilitation. The reward for us has been the changed lives of our residents. We thank God for what He has done for them.

What our Clients Say

Professional approach to identifying an appropriate treatment approach for my child. Once my child started to attend Dignity House it was clear there was a good match between patient and treatment centre. Treatment is progressive for complex mental health issues but I think Dignity House is well equipped and can provide Dialetic Behavior Therapy which is a great help in our case. I would highly recommend Dignity House as a safe place for great treatment.

 Thank you Dignity House for everything in helping my son through everything whilst living and engaging in his healing process there at Dignity House. My family would like to thank you all so much for your dedication. We always had faith in the program and appreciate it. Also, we look forward to his continued progress with you and your team. unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

Dear Kim & Nicholas, Apologies!!! I am remiss in not writing to you sooner to express our sincere appreciation and thanks for all you and your team did when we were at a loss on how to deal with the further recovery of our sister. It seems like yesterday when we first visited Dignity House to meet you and visit the property. Dignity House proved to be all we needed, the only institution in Bermuda providing the "transitional' element to recovery.
