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.
