Residents of a nursing home in Madrid criticize their “deplorable” conditions: “The food is so disgusting that we don’t eat for hours.”
“The food is so disgusting that we don’t eat for hours. We don’t even have clothes in the closet because there is no laundry room.” This is how Mariano Turegano García, 82, described in detail this Thursday the conditions in which the elderly live at the Residence and Day Center Moscatellares in San Sebastián de los Reyes, a fund that depends on the community of Madrid, Sanses Diaries reported.
He explained this to a full town meeting, clearly offended, and no one was left indifferent by his testimony. The suffocating heat they endured at the center this summer convinced them, which made them “fight a lot” and even went to press to fix the air conditioner.
“In our rooms, we spent the summer at 40 degrees because the community of Madrid looks different when it considers the health and well-being of its citizens. Some of our colleagues were hospitalized this summer due to severe dehydration that exacerbated or triggered other pathologies. A week ago, the center had promised to do the necessary work on air-conditioning. We had to fight hard and talk to the press to achieve this. Now it is your turn to implement that commitment,” Mariano added.
The man described how some of his colleagues, who cannot leave the area alone due to health problems, “go out freely and the police find them missing in the supermarket a few hours later and identify them by returning them to the store. .” . Center”.
Although the community of Madrid promised to establish effective control of the homeless and improve security through proper doors, he really called on them to do this “and their citizens, their own, the people of San Sebastián de los Reyes, we are. In such a case.”
Mariano also spoke to the plenary session about the unreliability of the work and the lack of staff at the centre. “40 degrees is for them too, and they have to do their work and work in positions that are not included,” he said, calling for better conditions for residential workers: “It is impossible to have a full workforce and stabilize it. If wages and work The situation will be so miserable. The result is our neglect and this neglect can lead to a tragic situation,” he said.
Finally, he also wanted to send a message to the city council of San Sebastián de los Reyes, as he believes that this problem is also the responsibility of the Consistory. “We have come to this town hall on other occasions to ask for help. It does not tell us their strength. I’m going to explain to you why those are your areas of expertise. Because we are citizens of San Sebastian de los Reyes. You also manage for us and thank us,” he concluded.
