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 nutritious, home-cooked meals, a selection of refreshments, a programme of activities and access to a wide range of support services.
Apart from the main lounge we have a small garden and patio along side our conservatory.
We offer Meals on Wheels 365 days of the year to Desborough and Rothwell and Monday to Friday to the surrounding villages.
Our own cooked 2 course meals are delivered with the help of our volunteers.
Special dietary conditions can be catered for.
We have a purpose-built, assisted bathing facility. Our bathing suite is relaxing, spacious and practical. You can choose from the relaxing luxury of the Air Spa bath with remote control transfer chair, or the convenience of the walk-in, wet room shower. We have full disabled toilet facilities and our friendly and experienced staff will look after your needs in a safe, warm and private environment. With specialist transport facilities available, we’ll even come and collect you – and take you home again, warm and refreshed.
We have a standard car and 2 wheelchair accessible vehicles, a Citroen and a Ford Freedom. The Renault 9 seater (shown below) is our latest acquistion. This vehicle and the Ford Freedom (pictured left) were entirely funded by The Florence Jessie Cleaver Trust, who have been a fantastic support to Marlow House over many years, for which we are truly grateful.
Maintaining our vehicles provides one of our biggest fundraising challenges, especially when one needs replacing!!! Our vehicles have to make lots of short trips, making many stops to pick up and drop off clients.
If you might consider volunteering as one of our drivers, find out more in our Volunteering section by clicking on the link below.
Previously we had a larger "bus" which needed a driver with a "Midas" qualification. This is not required for our 9 seater so anyone with a full licience can drive it, both staff and volunteers.
The Freedom can seat up to 7 people including the driver, or 5 plus a wheelchair user.
We have a standard Citroen plus another converted for a wheelchair passenger as shown above
