Since my father arrived here he has blossomed and is so happy that he is being cared for and raves about the layer cake. He is getting stronger every day and is determined to spend less time in a wheelchair and I am confident he will succeed with the exercises he is enjoying and the friendly and encouraging staff members.
Because we just love cakes!
Some like a Café con leche (coffee with milk), some like their Americano (straight black coffee served in a small glass) , some fancy a coca cola while others a local beer directly from bottle. Robert, however, he just asks for a Whisky - no ice.
At Casa Klein we like to celebrate. We love sitting around the table in our living room having a glass or a meal but whenever our guests feel like going back to their privacy in their rooms - they just leave, because if their is one thing we respect: It´s the need for privacy.
2018 has been a year with a few changes at Casa Klein. However, the way we do things are still the same as well being and respect of other people is still our main focus at Casa Klein - and will always be.
Everyone likes to stick around Casa Klein during the Christmas days and enjoy the atmosphere. However, Inger and Ruth asked for a trip. So off we went into the nearby mountains and villages. And along came Gittes “Galgo” - because dogs also apreciate a ride in the car now and then…
The results of the study shows that having a dog around can be a lifestyle factor that lowers the risk of blood clots, atherosclerosis and heart disease.
This partly as exercise and movement goes hand in hand with our philosophy at Casa Klein and our physiotherapist comes to train with our guests on regular basis.
The sight changes trough life, we all know that, but sometimes it´s just nice to go out and try new glasses - here Gitte is making a trip to the local optician to have a look at the latest eye wear fashion.
The small trips we make during the week are possible for all of our guests even for those using a wheelchair or residents who need a little walking assistance. We just take our time - cause that´s what living in this part of the world is all about.
And what better way to celebrate his birthday with a few family members a few days later with Birthday cake, a glass of Spanish Cava and then some excellent company!
But before the final decision was taken she said to us that there were one more condition: She wanted a dog! No problem we said. Dogs are always welcome at Casa Klein.
You live next to our regular guests - and on equal terms - which includes individual care with 24-hour surveillance and access to all our facilities and our nurses and staff are also at your disposal.
Exercise and movement goes hand in hand with our philosophy. Our physiotherapist comes every day and trains with our guests. And besides our gym facilities we also have a large outdoor swimming pool with a lift for wheelchair patients, so everyone can have a refreshing dip or a daily swim.
For our annual Eastern Lunch our wonderful kitchen staff served a traditional Scandinavian Eastern menu: Danish rye bread, herring, egg, shrimps, salmon and orange peel - add to that dark Eastern Beer for the brave ones.
It´s no secret, that becoming a senior citizen now and then requires a little help and some guidance from the health sector.
Now, in the care sector it´s a well-known phenomenon that light and heat from the sun have a healing effect - put good company on top of that and everything is just fine.
However, behind every face, every person at Casa Klein there is an unique life story. Long life lived, for a large part of our guests all over the world, and therefore many stories to be told.
Whether a person is fully fit, or disabled in any form, Casa Klein caters for those who want to live with company, help and/or medical support. It’s a home where people can enjoy their life in the style they wish.
Yes, it´s true! We do have a Mr. Bond staying at Casa Klein. And a surname like that brings responsibility. So one day, he thought it was so time for a sunglass upgrade - and off we went.
Inside the Shopping Center we tried out some different models: some modern, some classical and some in between.
But Mr. Bond was clear in his voice when he finally found the perfect sunglasses! And only the best is good enough for a gentleman named Mr. Bond - so of course he chose a pair of RAY BAN sunglasses, similar to the model that the famous General Douglas McArthur used back in the 1940s.
And then it was time for the girls' to go shopping. However, a very young guy on a very small bicycle for once managed to drag the attention away from the many great offers - and they found time for a bit of socializing.
...and then some shopping!
We´re good - now time for a short rest.
Every day at CASA CLEIN we try to built in some physically training.
That might be coordination exercises or working out on a stationary bike as Kate demonstrates below.
Or a quick round of foam ball catching, we never reject.
We have a saying that: "CASA KLEIN is a good place to be", and if we ask our Mr. Bond, he answers in elegant English is, that he is really happy to stay at CASA KLEIN and that he feels so much better than when he came.
The pleasure is all ours, Mr. Bond.
Thanks for stopping by reading our news. We hope you enjoyed seeing how we do things in the everyday at CASA KLEIN. News will appear approximately every 2nd month - and do feel free to make contact should you have any questions at all.
