Services- Medi Alert


Medi Alert does NOT work in Spain!!!  If you are not in the social security national health system in Spain where your allergies are noted on your records, and you have an accident or become incapacitated and unable to communicate with a Doctor or emergency service, you must make some other kind of arrangement, Im not sure what that might be other than to make as many people aware of your issue.  Even wearing one of those bracelets which alert people to your problem will not necessarily be looked at or understood  Some of my patients put notices on their fridges, who to call in case of an accident or emergency, which is usually me, so when calling an ambulance I can make it clear that they are not to be given certain drugs.  Its a bit of a hit and miss arrangement though.  If you are in the health system here and want an apparatus at home which calls a central unit at the press of a button around your neck, it will be recorded and you can have this in English.  These cost 10 euros per month if you are under 80 years old, and are free if you are over 80.

I hope this helps a little although it is a worry unless you really get organised!



Several years ago I had an accident on my bike near Tarragona

and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance .

The first thing the paramedics did was examine my allergy bracelet .



I can’t answer Gwen’s question about whether paramedic’s would check for medical information on an ID bracelet or necklace, but I have found another method of making medical information available where the paramedics are likely to look. I have discovered an app for my smart phone. It is a free app, and there is a selection to choose from. If you access the playstore and type in ’in case of emergency’ a selection will come up that you can choose from. The one I selected allows you to input medical information, allergy information, next of kin and/or contacts details, it also allows you to add important information such as you have a pet who is home alone and will need taking care of. The app shows on your home screen and can be accessed without unlocking your screen, and you can choose to allow it to access your phone or your contacts. The point is that in an emergency the paramedics are likely to check your phone to find a contact who can be notified. I now have this on my two mobiles one with the details in English and the other with the details in Spanish. Hope this is of help, not only to those with serious medical conditions, but also possibly for those with pets who are concerned that in the case of an accident nobody knows that they need to be cared for.

Services Available –Gardener  


Now’s a good time to begin work on the garden.

Whether you have an existing one or are wanting to plan a new one, breaking ground and/or enrichening it by working in organic compost and manure is the way to start, as it is best to prepare the soil before any planting is done, in order to get the best results.

New gardens take work to create!…and established gardens still require regular care.

What’s on –Time for the Partneryoga Workshop changed


First of all I want to say thank you for the beautiful mantra chanting in the morning at Centro Shiva Torrox. Feel invited to come again. It’s donation based so you don’t need much money. I know that yoga often costs a bit more money but for the chanting you give what you want. It was heartwarming
Besides that Inma and I have changed the time for the upcoming partneryoga workshop. It’s gonna be Jan, 28th 6-8 pm.
You can come with your partner, a family member or another person and enjoy the feeling of doing yoga together. Also beginners are warmly welcome.
It’s a lot more than bodywork.
It’s about communication, trust and humor.
Let us know, if you want to come.
12€/ p.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
