Help at Home (HAH) Clinical lead, Lynda Christopher went along to the retirement home and day residence El Palmeral del Mar Menor to visit one of HAH’s oldest clients, 92-year-old Iris Everett.
Having arrived in Spain over a year ago from her home in the UK, Iris came over to be with her daughter Jackie Sutherland.
Shortly after her arrival, HAH was asked to attend to continue treatment on Iris’s legs.
“Mum has had this same problem for more than two years, and nothing has worked, but Lynda came along and worked so hard, and managed to clear this up very quickly, she really worked miracles,” said daughter Jackie.
“Unfortunately, due to Mum’s health, she is now living at the Residencia, but she absolutely loves being there, and we cannot thank them enough for their care and attention.”
Lynda still calls in regularly to see Iris as they have become great friends, and Lynda said “ I look forward to seeing Iris, as in spite of her problems, she is a great character, and such a happy lady.”
Jackie thanked Lynda for all she and HAH had done for her Mum, and although the service is free, insisted on making a donation to continue this excellent work in the community.
