Description
The atmosphere at Enliven’s Longview Home is easy-going, warm and friendly. The home is bright and spacious and there is always something to do. Situated on beautiful grounds with views across Tawa, Longview Home is a well known local landmark.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Longview Home, like all Enliven Central homes, embraced an elder directed model of care called the Eden Alternative.

This means we work to ensure the elders of Longview Home have companionship, variety and spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives. It ensures that elders are involved in decisions that relate to both their personal wellbeing and what happens at their home.

Here, residents are supported to maintain their independence and routines, and to continue with hobbies, interests and passions, in a way that’s right for the individual.

OUR PEOPLE
Our staff are not only highly trained, they’re also friendly, caring and embrace our elder-directed philosophy of care.

At Longview Home, in addition to rest home care we also provide hospital level services. This means we have nurses on-duty 24-hours-a-day. The doctor also visits regularly and we are in regular contact to ensure all clinical needs are met.

SERVICES
Enliven’s Longview Home offers rest home and hospital level care services, as well as short term respite, health recovery care and an engaging day programme.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS
As an Enliven home we’re proud to be more than just ‘family friendly’. At Longview Home, your family is part of our family. After all, family, friends and the community play a big part in life here.

At Longview, you’ll find there are no set visiting times; you can invite your grandchildren, family and friends to visit at any time. Plus we have a great toy box and games to keep the little ones entertained!

You may like to invite family or friends to join in the special events and social outings organised by Longview Home. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join you for a meal.
