Glenmoor House Care Home on the Rockingham Road in Corby is long established and proud to be serving the elderly of Corby and Kettering. We provide a complete range of care from nursing through to residential and dementia care and we also offer respite care for carers who need a break or for people keen to sample what care home life is all about.
We work hard to settle all our residents into home life as we appreciate that this can sometimes be a challenge. Our staff are experienced at making everyone feel as though they are in a home where residents are valued, their lives celebrated and memories shared. Our approach is holistic, catering for mind, body and soul and taking advantage of modern and technological resources to achieve this aim. We use the reminiscence magazine the Daily Sparkle to trigger memories and set communication going. There is Wi-Fi throughout the home, which is free to all.
Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms as they please. Familiar things makes the strange and new more acceptable. Bedrooms are spacious and light and come with walk-in showers and flat-screen TVs. Most like to find company in the cheerful lounges, but there are always quiet spots to for having a cosy chat or just relaxing.
Please call our home manager Susan Dunnell on 01536 205255 if you have any other queries or would like to arrange a tour with our front of house team.
Companionship & Laughter
When the weather is fine we enjoy our games sessions in the garden – we have our own versions of tennis, darts and netball. Residents may not be up to same standard as in their youth, but all exercise is good and keeps people young. We go to the nearby Autumn Centre for Chair Exercise too. Some of us may even have taken up a few tips from the belly dancer who came to entertain us recently.
Our enthusiastic Activity Coordinators keep everyone busy and if not exercising, perhaps playing musical bingo, having a manicure or a massage or doing a quiz – Do you know why KitKat wrappers were blue in the last war? *Answer at the end of the page.
We believe that being involved with the local community is an important part of a fulfilled life. We have long standing relations with local schools and St Ninian’s church. Children from the nearby Rockingham Primary School come and visit and always bring a smile to our faces. We like to get out and about too and our minibus means we can go on regular outings, including trips to the theatre, the Autumn Centre, West Glebe Park or just for a relaxing meal in the pub.
Family and friends can always keep in touch with what is going on through our Facebook page, which includes recordings of some of our favourite activities as well as regular updates of upcoming events.

Pimms & Lemonade
As well as using our garden for exercise, we like to relax there too and on special occasions enjoy a glass or two of Pimms. Tea and cake in the garden is not unusual either. But residents always manage to have a good appetite for the three healthy meals that are served up in our lovely dining room. Mealtimes are a great opportunity to come together and enjoy one another’s company, and the dining experience is an integral part of life at Glenmoor House.
If we have a themed day, then our chef will come up with the goods: Turkish Delight of course when the belly dancer came in, and other tasty Turkish treats. On ordinary days there is always a choice of dishes: good old favourites and plenty of fresh vegetables are beautifully presented along with hearty puddings. We welcome guests to join us at mealtimes, so come along and see for yourself.
*KitKat used plain chocolate in the war, because of the milk shortage. Red wrappers were reintroduced in 1947 when milk was available again.
