Irene's story

Señora Irene is 64 years old and has lived in a social welfare house for the last 15 years. She has been pensioned for 3 years and her pension is her only source of income with which to pay for her basic necessities of food, footwear and clothing, utility payments. Señora Irene is covered for medical services, but requires more specialized tests to be performed. She already has tan appointment for hese tests but not for 2 more months. She knows that due to her age she is much more susceptible to age-related diseases which is why Sra. Irene needs to know as soon as possible the results of these tests as she doesn't want to fall ill in the future with an illness that if detected in time could be avoided. This is why she is asking for help to have the medical tests done.
