I have come to Longlands to stay for a short time until I feel better. I have really enjoyed my time here so far. I have made some new friends here. I enjoyed taking part in the music activities. I have never sang so much. I have enjoyed the community joining us for Clockhouse over 50's sing along. The staff are all very kind and helpful. When my husband comes to visit every day he is made very welcome and always joins us for pudding even though he has eaten at home.

My mother has been resident at Longlands for over two years. Having had experience of other homes with family members, I can honestly say that Longlands is by far the best. The quality of care my mother receives is excellent and she frequently tells me how happy she is there . The home si wonderful, friendly atmosphere and there is always an activity going on, many of which my mother enjoys. The staff are always helpful and welcoming when we visit and I am always impressed by their enthusiasm and dedication.

I have lived at Longlands for over a year now. Longlands is very homely I enjoy living here. I have stayed at three other homes but found Longlands the best and would not want to move anywhere else. Since living at Longlands I have become a volunteer at the local primary school every Tuesday during term time. I also go to the local coffee mornings in the community every Wednesday. I have made lots of new friends and tried activities I would never of tried before. All the staff and manager are very nice and helpful. I enjoy running the fates twice a year. I am looking forward to the next one in August.

I feel that Longlands has made a real difference to my life, since losing my husband. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't moved here, I went days without seeing people. I have made some lovely friends, I join most activities and enjoy our local community coffee morning where I have met more friends. I take part in most garden centre trips, tried new things that I have never tried before.
