About: Sligo Leitrim Psychiatry of Later Life

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

When you come into Liscarney House, it is like when you are talking to staff, they talk to you individually on your own. They make eye contact and listen so well. You feel like you are the only person they are concerned about. They ring me when I don't turn up to Liscarney House to see if I am all right.

Everything you could ask for is here. I tell everyone I meet how great it is. Its important for me to be able to talk here. You can voice your opinions to Kevin the Manager and whether he agrees or not, we never fall out. Thanks to all the staff.
