Mrs. Annette Bering

I am writing this letter to share how delighted I am with your international convalescent and retirement home where my father, Dr. Kaj Bering now resides. Your staff are delightful, hard working and very dedicated to the well being of all your residents who range from folks requiring a great deal of care, several wheelchair bound, to others who are more independent. When my Dad first came to Casa Klein I was fortunate enough to be able to stay with him for a couple of days to help him settle in.

Casa Klein’s property has the most beautiful gardens with enormous palm trees, cactus gardens and roses, many roses and there is a wide path around the gardens that enables a wheelchair resident to view it from all aspects and take in the vistas of the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. In the morning you are awakened to a gorgeous sunrise with the various species of birds singing, such a peaceful tranquil location with the fresh air.

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. The Spanish chef, Tony one night came out to the veranda with 4 plates of dinner on his arms singing and serving the residents. One could not help but have a huge smile.

I was able to travel back to my home in Canada and feel confident that my father is in the best place possible and that he will enjoy many wonderful layer cakes with his coffee. My father has his sense of humour back, and his dimple in his cheek has appeared once again. What could be better. Thank you.

Sincerely,

— Annette Bering, Nova Scotia, Canada

I have been wanting to communicate how much I noticed and appreciate what you and the other staff do everyday. The respect and care you show for each individual is really wonderful and fills me with a lot of good feelings. It is so comforting to know my Mother is in a nice environment with a staff of remarkable care givers. I really saw more than you think, I saw what was emanating from your hearts. I hope you get it all back when it’s your turn!

— much love and appreciation, Dottie

It was a coincidence that my mother came to Casa Klein on the Costa del Sol, near Malaga, Spain. We had heard about the Senior Hotel through acquaintances, and contacted Joan from Casa Klein to inquire. Casa Klein quickly arranged all the practicalities and my mother came to Casa Klein before she looked around.

Before leaving, she was plagued by dementia, the onset of dementia and the appetite for life had almost completely disappeared. Mom came to Casa Klein on a three-month trial that went beyond all expectation. Intensive physical therapy, regular medical supervision, sufficient pain management and the cozy atmosphere made everything better for my mother and she regained her good mood and not least the joy of life.

Quickly, she fell among the sweet residents, and the friendly and dedicated staff. Of course, it was far from Denmark, but we often come and visit her and have learned that our get-together gets better and more sincere when we are with her, often just a weekend.

I myself am an orthopedic surgical specialist and have experienced the course of many senior citizens. I often think about what a gift it would be if all the elderly could experience such a get-together. I also often remember with great pleasure those evenings at Casa Klein, where we sit and laugh, the sun goes down, and the chef grills on the open air grill and the red wine is poured. That is the quality of life.

I highly recommend a stay at Casa Klein, both for professional – and not least for human reasons.

It is a very positive and unique kind of stay and care Casa Klein offers. However, where would one wish that other nursing homes could provide the same security and joy of life that Casa Klein obviously provides its residents. However, it is probably difficult as there are many things that make Casa Klein unique: The staff at Casa Klein is fantastic and the place is adorable.

The house is a nice typical Spanish property on a hilltop just outside Velez-Malaga with an absolutely stunning garden around. The residents gather in the cozy community house for dinner, games, reading and ordinary cozy talk. Then you can retreat to your own room.

All you have to say is that Casa Klein is a truly unique place to spend its otium: Senior Hotel is a good name.

The purpose of our visit, after all, was my brother’s dear Ruth. And to make sure she was as good as possible. We could positively say that.

Unfortunately, the fact that we all grow older is not possible to prevent, but it is nice to find that people like you and your great colleagues make sure that dignity is maintained, even though old age weakens those we love.

Even though I’m not a youth anymore unfortunately – and had to spend the night at Hospital Xanit with heart problems. Really undramatic – yet a meeting of arrogant doctors who were more concerned with my financial insurance than providing human support in an anxiety-filled situation.

Such experiences put things into perspective – and reinforced my impression from your visit with you – that Ruthy gets the best treatment both my brother and I had wanted for her. Big thanks!

This is all I can contribute – besides sharing with my family that Ruth is in your best hands.

Good luck with Casa Klein, thanks so far for what you provide,

Yours sincerely
