The Nursing Wing
Constructed in natural stone and completed in 1992, this extension provided additional nursing facilities to an already residential care home. Officially opened by His Grace the Duke of Buccleuch KT. Each room has en-suite facilities, TV & telephone points and furnished to very high standards.
Residents are allowed, wherever possible, to live their lives as independently as possible. They are encouraged to remain active as long as possible and participate in as many activities as they are able to manage, subject to their own limitations.
The Home helps clients to lead their individual lifestyles by encouraging existing and new interests and providing varied activities for those interested. Most of our residents come from or have family in the surrounding areas of Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough, Northampton or Peterborough and friends and family are welcomed at any time to visit their loved ones.
