When you are hospitalized at St. Martin de Porres you are provided a bed and the Nurses monitor the patients and distribute medications. A family member or guardian provides your meals and assists with your personal care needs. The family can purchase prepared food at the hospital canteen but most cook the meals at the cookhouse which is located next to our house. The food is cooked over open wood fires in the cookhouse. Sometimes the smoke is so thick it is hard to imagine being inside long enough to prepare a meal. It is the system here and it works.
