Care homes welcome guests

Two care homes in Corby will be opening their doors to visitors tomorrow as part of National Care Home open day.

Members of the public are invited to Sandalwood Court on the Oakley Vale estate and Thackley Green specialist care centre, Great Oakley, to look around the facilities and chat with residents and the care teams.

Between 2pm and 4pm, Sandalwood Court staff will be dressing up in themed 50s and 60s costumes to serve a traditional high tea.

At Thackley Green, between 10am and 4pm, there will also be an afternoon tea and singers.

Laura Wood, manager of Thackley Green, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming lots of visitors and I’m excited to show people some of the fantastic work we do.”
