about

longview care home

Longview is a privately owned residential care home for people over the age of 65 years old with Dementia.  Longview has a great reputation in the area and we are well recognised for the professional approach of our staff together with the family/friendly feel within the Home.  Longview is “home” for our residents and we try to allow for this as much as we can in every aspect of their life here.

We are very aware of the difficulties of caring for loved-ones when they become unable to look after themselves.  We offer all forms of care with trained and qualified staff to meet the needs of our residents.

Longview has been established since 1981 and is situated in the small village of Goonhavern, close to Perranporth, Truro and Newquay.  Longview is a large 2 storey building set in lovely gardens.  We have 2 lounges and a dining room and we cater for 28 residents.  

We respect our residents’ privacy, freedom, social, cultural and religious beliefs as much as we can whilst also providing a high standard of care for their physical, medical and emotional needs.

Mike and Chris Westmore, the owners, have been in the care industry for over 30 years and have a great deal of experience.  The company is family run by Mike, Chris and their 4 children.  We all have regular contact with the staff and residents at Longview.  Kanwaljit Kaur is the Registered Manager and has worked at the Home since 2011.  She has a great deal of experience in caring for our residents and their high level of needs.  She would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Kanwaljit is supported by a well-trained and experienced group of senior and more junior care staff as well as domestic staff and cooks.  We also have a dedicated gardener who looks after the gardens and the large vegetable patch.  We use as many of the vegetables produced in the garden as we can in food provided to the residents.

We are proud to have achieved a “Good” classification in all categories of our latest CQC inspection.  The latest report is available below.

We set out our aims more fully in our Statement of Purpose.

Thank you for all the care you are taking for all the residents, but particularly for my mum…You have done an incredible job and I trust that the decisions you make are wise and informed…I have been able to speak with my mum and have bought a special phone so I can WhatsApp via [one of your staff], for which I am so grateful.
