Laxton Hall, a 17th Century Grade II-listed building, is situated between Laxton and Corby in Northamptonshire. It has been converted into a residential care home whilst keeping the integrity of the original architecture intact. It is set in 85 acres of land and has beautiful gardens. P.C.M Housing Association (previously called P.B.F Housing Association), owns the Home. It is staffed by the Polish Sisters of Mary Immaculate, an order long recognised for their humanity, compassion and specialised care for Polish community groups, the vulnerable and dispossessed. The Polish-speaking Sisters are sent from the Mother House in Poland, and are already experienced in care for the elderly, particularly those who have been affected by events of World War II.
Laxton Hall in keeping with the mission of the Sisters of Mary Immaculate seek to create a loving family atmosphere, taking into account the history of polish displaced persons scattered around Great Britain after the Second World War. It is our aim and commitment to ensure a homely, respectful, compassionate and open atmosphere amongst our residents, sisters and staff. We always maintain the privacy, dignity, rights and quality of life of all residents regardless of race or creed. We care for the physical, spiritual and psychological needs within a holistic approach at all times.
The criterion for admission is by referrals from the prospective Residents, their relatives, next of kin, GP, or any other appropriate persons. The person must be of Polish origin, over 65 years of age and previously resident in England, with Polish as their first language. Prospective residents are initially invited for a two-week stay, to sample the life and atmosphere of the Home and to assess the quality, facilities and suitability of the Home. Once a prospective resident or advocate contacts the Home, an information pack will be sent.
