Welcome to the Marlow House website. We are a community day care centre located in Desborough, Northamptonshire.
We are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
A warm welcome awaits you!
Simply open the door, come on in, and meet some new friends. Where else can you go to relax, chat, enjoy a freshly cooked meal and have some fun in a home-from-home atmosphere? If transport is a problem, we can pick you up in one of our fully accessible vehicles, and then take you home again after a great day out. Marlow House offers a warm, friendly and safe environment, ideal for those who enjoy a varied social life but wish to retain some independence in their own home. As well as great company, smiles and laughter, we offer nutritional, home-cooked meals, a selection of refreshments and access to a wide range of support services, including our in-house assisted bathing facility.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of older and the less fortunate people of varying ages in Rothwell, Desborough and the surrounding villages.
We aim, in everything we do to:
