FOUR residents remain at the Marymar residence for the elderly which closed two months ago. This follows the death of one of the five remaining elderly ladies at the home last week.
Amidst controversy over the reasons for closure, Marymar shut its doors in July by owners Obra Social de Unicaja forcing the 80 residents to find alternative accommodation.
According to Rafael Santiago, a family member of one of the residents the remaining pensioners have not been charged fees for the past three months, which he believes is to be able to evict the remaining residents for “breach of contract.”
But Unicaja reportedly said it is “impossible to charge for a business which no longer exists,” given Marymar is closed, but “the remaining residents are still being looked after”.
Marymar residents were told in April they had to be out by the end of May for “urgent repair work to be carried out.”
Thirty were moved to other homes, mostly to Torrequebrada and Torre del Mar, but others refused to go and have reported Unicaja for ‘service deficiencies’.
