I got a good feeling from the moment I entered Liscarney House. I had been very worried about coming and did not know what to expect. There is such a good welcome from all that staff at the hospital, they make you feel at ease and are so helpful.
Every day I have spoken with a nurse, either Francis or Gavin, and they have talked about my feelings and how I am getting on. They have tried to put me at my ease and are good listeners, also the daily talks about depression and how to cope are very helpful.
There is a feeling of calm and caring about Liscarney and I enjoy coming. Even though there are many people coming here, I am made to feel important.
The Drs are very helpful and its been good to have access to them to discuss how the medication is working.
I do worry a bit about how I will be when its time to leave. I am due for CBT, so far I have not heard anything about it.
My husband feels that I have improved since coming, but feels the meds are the most important. He has been to the house and liked the feel of the place.
I have bipolar and the contact helps to monitor how I am doing with it.
Finally the food is lovely.
