Marymar retirement home pensioners stand their ground


FIVE residents remain at the Marymar retirement home in Benalmadena a month after receiving a letter from Unicaja telling them they had to leave within ten days.

The more than 70 elderly residents of the home were first informed on April 8 that they had to be out by May 31 for urgent repair work to be carried out.


Thirty were moved to other homes, mostly to Torrequebrada and Torre del Mar, but others refused to go and have even reported Unicaja for ‘service deficiencies’.

Now, the five that remain in the home, plan to stay until September so they can continue negotiations with Unicaja.

Their relatives say they “can’t legally close the home with people inside” and report that members of Malaga Public Prosecutor’s Office have visited the home to carry out routine follow-ups, as well as a judge and a medical examiner.

After reports were carried out, Unicaja claimed that one woman was not capable of deciding for herself and wanted to move her.
