Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Louise McClusky here at Longfield Care Home in Eglinton, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Longfield Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

Specialist care

Longfield Care Home also offers specialist help for adults and young people with different needs, including:

  • Physical disabilities

"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
