At Longdene Homecare, we understand that independence is of paramount importance and a welcome, affordable alternative to a care home admission.
That is why our approach to care focuses on the individual to ensure your wishes, aspirations and expectations are met. Staff are encouraged to concentrate on your abilities rather than your disabilities to enable you to continue living your life your way.
We provide care to people of all ages including people with Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities and other Special Needs. Care ranges from thirty minute visits at any time of day, right through to full-time live-in care.
