The story of the little prince deals with universal themes such as the love, friendship, the life’s sense and the human nature.

Dad, why don’t you try exercises for the brain?

Dad, why don’t you try exercises for the brain?

Have you ever doubted whether you turned off the gas, the iron or if the checker gives you the change back in the supermarket? Even though the brain usually makes us being on the right track, sometimes it can play you dirty tricks. These absent-mindednesses are not usual in early age, but as you grow old, these uncommon situations can turn into something recurrent. The first thing that you should wonder is if you have given up subjecting your brain to new challenges, the second thing to do is to develop a strategy to age actively.

“Living again” by Noemí Léndez

“Living again” by Noemí Léndez

My name is Noemí Léndez and I have a blog called “Living again” (https://viviendootravez.wordpress.com/).

I suffered a brain stroke in 2015 and while recovering in Hospital Casaverde (where there’s also a blog for the patients) I thought I could create a blog myself, so people can know about my experience with the aim of spreading something positive to those who read it and may be in the same situation that me.

Successful case in Casaverde Mutxamel – E.R.G.

Successful case in Casaverde Mutxamel – E.R.G.

  1. Tell us your experience.

My experience with the brain damage is very soft, I felt it immediately in my left hand, it got weaker and later, it occurred the same in the left side of my face, concretely in my tongue, lips and eyes. I knew then it was related to my brain. The first thing I decided to do was going to my office, picking an Advanced Physics book and a philosophy book and I did some calculations so I make sure my reasoning was not being affected.

I arrived on January of 2016 to Casaverde and a month later they had to transfer me to the Hospital due to I have a lot of fever and diarrhoea. I had to stay interned in the hospital for a month after having an operation. When I came back to Casaverde, I was very weak and I had lost a lot of weight.

  1. What has Casaverde Rehabilitation Hospital provided you?

When I arrived here I couldn’t do anything by myself due to I have not enough strength I could not standing, I need help for all the activities that once I performed independently every day.

Thanks to my stance in the Rehabilitation Casaverde Hospital, at my discharge date, I am totally independent in my daily activities so I can dress myself, have a shower, getting ready by myself just like I did before the incident.

  1. What has Casaverde Rehabilitation Hospital provided you?

In the centre I have performed exercises with different professionals. For example, I did walking exercises with the physiotherapist, I did exercises to improve the facial paralysis with the speech therapist, I did attention exercises with the neuropsychologist and dressing, cleanliness and shower where I performed the different necessary movements while I told how to do them in the easiest way. Therefore, step by step, I started to achieving independency. I also performed exercises with both hands, especially with the left hand which I have affected by the brain damage.

  1. What will you miss now you have been discharged?

I have been in the centre for 6 months, I appreciate all of them because they have cured me. In spite of being discharged, I feel quite because I will be able to count with the professionals that work daily in the ambulatory clinic in Alicante if I ever need them.

  1. What would you recommend to a person in the same situation?

I would recommend them to do the same and follow my example, considering that, apart from my recuperation, I have shared moments with many friends that have improved a lot their physic state just like me.

Jedi training

Jedi training

I am a huge fan of Star Wars and the saga lovers will understand me…

In March 2015, I suffered from an ictus as a consequence of a brain haemorrhage. The early rehabilitation became to me a Jedi Training: I had to control the force deep inside me to avoid falling in the dark side. The left part of my body remained paralysed and my brain was not able to recognise what I saw with my left eye.

My experience in the Casaverde Mutxamel Hospital: 80 years, two ictus, and a year of recovery.

My experience in the Casaverde Mutxamel Hospital: 80 years, two ictus, and a year of recovery.

When I arrived to the Casaverde Mutxamel Hospital from the hospital after two ictus, the centre staff had to assist me in all my everyday activities due to I could not do anything by myself. For example, they had to take me to the bathroom, to take me out to go for a walk, to use a crane to move me because I could not stand up… I remember that even my children visited me from Germany because my prognosis was very bad: they forecast the worst.

Dear beach, I’ve come back this year – Our residents’ blog

Dear beach, I’ve come back this year – Our residents’ blog

The beach is a place where we are supposed to have fun and be relaxed in spite of some disadvantages we all know…

During July and August it’s quite difficult to find a spot to place the sunshade because there are a lot of people and we have a lot of problems to place it. Therefore, it will be better to use other system in order to hide ourselves from the sun, for example a Mexican hat or something similar.

The last time I was in the beach I had a as neighbour a lovely family with a charming children who had me jumping through the hoops doing all kind of mischievous deeds remarking the fact that they fully fill my omelette sandwich with sand.

All this is true and I had a very good time bathing in the sea or walking upon the wonderful sand. For sure at the first moment I have the chance to come back I will do and I just can’t wait because as I said before I had a fantastic experience!
