- Bupa Short Stay services
The only care home in Riverton, Longwood is located in a beautiful coastal area of Southland. We have the best of both worlds; a peaceful, rural outlook, yet just a five-minute drive to the beach and the local shops or half an hour’s drive into Invercargill.
Features of Longwood:
• Friendly to make you feel at home.
• 24 hour assistance.
• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.
• Space for some quiet time.
• Communal dining room.
Our rooms are very spacious, some with an ensuite. We have many large social spaces for our residents to sit in, chat with other residents or participate in one of our many activities, from mosaic making to quizzes to gardening. We also have regular outings to local scenic spots, historic and nostalgic places, beaches and bush areas. However, if you prefer to simply relax on your own, you’re free to do that too because life here is how you like it and we know everyone has different tastes.
We offer a range of activities and entertainment that gives you the opportunity to keep busy, learn new skills and get to know the other residents. You can get involved as much or as little as you like - it’s up to you how your spend your day. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.

We’re passionate about what we do and know that everyone is different. That’s why we like to get to know you and your likes and dislikes so that the care we give is exactly how you like things. Some of us have been here for over ten years and over that time have created a wonderful, family-like atmosphere where we ensure that everyone is comfortable and enjoys themselves.
The most qualified people to talk to about your care are you and your family. That’s why we are always sure to make decisions about your care together, so that any wishes you have will be honoured.
You can arrange a time to visit us by contacting our Care Home Manager, Dianne Clark on (03) 234 8099 or after hours on 027 234 8650 and you're always welcome to drop in and see us during business hours for a chat.
