Here we provide high quality care 24 hours a day. The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living.

The residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.

My sister Margaret, who has M.S, had been a resident in Longfield Care Home for eleven years. In all that time she has been more than content with all the loving care she has received, and still is. I agree with Margaret. The staff are really excellent, I have no difficulty in putting excellent against the questionnaire, and also would recommend it highly.
Since mammy has come into the home the staff have been really open and respectful in every way. They communicate every detail of mammy's care to us all. Nothing is ever seen as a problem, the staff are a credit to your organisation. From the manageress to the auxiliary nurses.
My sister was admitted to Longfield Care Home on October 2015. She needed 24/7 care. Longfield Care Home to me, her brother, was like heaven. Management and staff are a credit for their professional and caring practice to all the residents at Longfield Care Home. I would like to stress that management and staff are very good ambassadors for Four Seasons Health Care.
My mother is very well taken care of medically, physically and emotionally. She is content and enjoys the company of other ladies and the excellent entertainment provided. I know that she is safe and well cared for is a comfort. The manager and staff are excellent in their caring of the elderly.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

There’s nothing like a good celebration, but Lilly a resident at Longfield Care Home in Eglinton and her family had a fantastic day of celebration that spanned across generations.
Louise McClusky, Home Manager, said: “The 28th January is a very special day for Lilly and her family. First and foremost it was Lilly’s birthday, which she thoroughly enjoyed as she was celebrating the 40th Wedding Anniversary of Derrick and Liz. To top it off Derrick and Liz’s daughter Gillian married the love of her life Ryan too. They all came into the home to share the special day with Lilly. It was beautiful for everyone to see. The bride looked gorgeous and Lilly was definitely a proud grandma.”
