Life at Longfield Care Home

A carer and a resident

Longfield is very much a home from home. All the staff are extremely caring, treating every resident with dignity and respect. They will also do anything asked of them, to make the residents comfortable and feel as if they are happy. Family members are made to feel welcome at any time. Visiting is a pleasure.

Catherine Hull, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Longfield Care Home

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.

Pauline Macartney, Sister of Resident/Service User at Longfield Care Home

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.

John Curran, Son of Resident/Service User at Longfield Care Home

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.

George McCready, Brother of Resident/Service User at Longfield Care Home

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.

intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.

The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.

With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.

In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Longfield-Care-Home-Eglinton-Spring-2017

27 Mar 2017

Residents from Longfield Care Home in Eglinton and students from a nearby school have been bridging the gap between the generations finding out how the golden days compare to the here and now.

Louise McClusky, Home Manager, said: “The residents enjoyed spending time getting to know the students. To both generations surprise they had quite a bit in common. The music may have changed but some of the fashions have done a full 360 and are enjoyed by both young and old alike.”

When they weren’t talking to the students, residents, relatives and the team at the home were welcoming spring in with a smile. They also enjoyed a lesson in flower arranging adding some colours of spring into the home.
