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

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.

9-CHAPS-Graduate-Northern-Ireland-2017

20 Sep 2017

Here at Four Seasons we value all of our team members. We encourage and support them to complete courses to help them develop their skills, enabling them to further enhance their career.

One such way for Care Assistants to do this, is for them to complete the Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) 12 week training programme. Whilst completing this course, the Care Assistants can learn how to support nurses with certain duties potentially freeing the nurse to deal with a more complex issue.

Nine of our Care Assistant in Northern Ireland enrolled onto this programme, and on Monday 4th September they successfully graduated as Care Home Assistant Practitioners.

Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Northern Ireland said: “The graduation of the 9 Care Home Assistant Practitioners in Northern Ireland is a hugely significant achievement as these special pioneers are the very first in such a role across the Care Home sector here.

"Having Mary Hinds the Director of Nursing from the Public Health Agency and HSC in NI along to present the awards has reinforced the positive impact that CHAPs have in delivering the best experience of care for our residents."

More information about our CHAPs Programme is available in our careers section.
