Welcome to Longfield Care Home
You'll find Longfield Care Home in Eglinton, County Londonderry.
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. We provide nursing care for older people, and dedicated care for younger people with physical disabilities. We also offer respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
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.
Life at Longfield Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to what residents like, and we have a full and varied calendar. Professional entertainers come to perform, and there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We organise regular trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum, and we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea.
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.
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.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

Residents from Longfield Care Home in Eglinton enjoyed a lunch trip out with the Greggan Community project and were in for a lovely surprise.
Louise McClusky, Home Manager, said: “The residents were looking forward to the lunch out, however they were unaware that we had another little surprise for them. After they enjoyed their lunch they were entertained by some birds of prey. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.”
