My aunt currently suffers with Bipolar and she has extreme mood swings from being down in the dumps through to highs above the clouds. Very irritable and always needs to a change of scenary.

Tell me, are there any clinics/organisations that provide daily care for someone in her condition? A professional facility that is backed up by doctors that can help with he medication and doses.

Are there any placeslike this in SA and more specifically in Durban?

Please help..
