Methodist Fremont Home Health Helps 107-Year-Old Woman Stay in Her HousePublished: July 5, 2022
At 107 years old, Marcella Pallat still does her own cooking and laundry.
She engages in light-hearted conversation with guests who come to the North Bend house where she’s lived for decades.
"I don’t want to leave this house," Pallat said in a tone that’s good-natured yet firm. "I told the doctor, 'Don’t you ever try to tell me to leave my house, because I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying home.'"
Dr. Tom Wolf, a family physician in Fremont, acknowledges Pallat’s resolve.
"Marcella is fiercely independent and has been that way for as long as I have known her," he said. "I believe that has helped her live as long as she has."
Yet, even independent people can use a little help. That’s what Pallat gets from Methodist Fremont Health Home Health Care, which has been providing her with services for about two years.
