Mrs. Eugenia, who we call affectionally Gienia, is a lady unaccustomed to helplessness or weakness. For many years she worked as a village mayor. The one who helped others needs help herself today.
Gienia lives alone. Her daughters often visit her, so does her son-in-law, but they are not able to reorganize their lives to be with her every day. And the old woman requires more and more help and attention as time goes by. Mrs. Gienia has problems with moving, she has become so infirm that it is hard for her to hold a glass or a cup of tea in her hand. To make matters worse, memory “plays tricks on her”. Such handicaps make her life difficult, and even threaten her further functioning.
Mrs. Eugenia belongs to the so-called dependent people group, i.e. those requiring constant care. Simply her body is getting old. She is under the care of a family doctor, but what she needed most was the fastest and effective physiotherapy which she received from the our home hospice. Our physiotherapist visits Mrs. Gienia twice a week to improve her independent movement. It is these dependent people that we reach with the necessary help and care.
