Hamburg/Ulm/Preußisch Oldendorf, 27 January 2021. Cureus GmbH, which specialises in the development of system care homes, and the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group, as the future operator, have received approval for the construction of a senior residence on an approx. 4,300-square-metre plot at Bremer Straße 9 in 32361 Preußisch Oldendorf. After demolishing the property’s existing structure, a total of 84 new care places in generously designed, barrier-free single rooms will be created on two full storeys and one recessed storey by summer 2022. In addition, 25 of the rooms will be wheelchair-accessible. The operator will be the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group from Ulm with its subsidiary MEDIKO from Hanover – a care specialist with over ten years of experience in inpatient, semi-inpatient and assisted living.

The building has been designed to the highest, modern architectural standards and will blend harmoniously into the surrounding residential development. Generous windows, a bright, attractive facade and a high-quality garden with lots of greenery will combine to create a warm and welcoming ambience. In addition to a spacious communal terrace, there will also be plenty of areas for resting and spending time in the greenery. The living and communal areas cover approx. 4,800 square metres. The building is designed to accommodate a restaurant with a full kitchen and a hair and pedicure salon. These services can also be used by residents from the neighbouring area. There are also communal kitchens and living areas for residents on all floors.

The location of the senior residence in Bremer Straße is central and thus optimally situated. The nearby bus stop and the provision of 20 car and ten bicycle parking spaces on the premises ensure very good accessibility for visitors and staff.

“We are experiencing a steadily increasing demand for modern care places in Preußisch Oldendorf. We can meet this demand with our new building”, says Kay Grünewald, Project Manager at Cureus. “We are getting ready to start with the demolition of the old building in the near future, followed by the structural work in spring. With the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group and its subsidiary MEDIKO, we have also been able to gain an experienced, renowned operator who stands for modern, individual care”.

According to Focus magazine (41/2020), SCHÖNES LEBEN Group’s specialist care providers MEDIKO, compassio and Gut Köttenich are among Germany’s best nursing and retirement home operators and have a very positive image among consumers. The company is not only committed to delivering high-quality services and innovative and progressive concepts for residents, it is equally focused on creating excellent working conditions for its employees. “We are looking forward to the Preußisch Oldendorf location and the opening of the new senior residence in summer 2022”, says Marc Hildebrand, CEO of the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group. “We have many years of experience in the operation of senior residences and want to enable our customers to live self-determined, comfortable and age-appropriate lives”. The future residence in Preußisch Oldendorf will also create around 60 modern, crisis-proof jobs.

The new senior residence is designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This standard is based on exacting and uniform quality standards and is oriented to the needs of all stakeholders, including care home operators and residents. Care homes built to the Cureus standard are optimised in all respects and include, for example, optimised floor plans and conveniently arranged rooms and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility: interior corridors benefit from as much daylight as possible, every room has floor-to-ceiling windows, and the modern bathrooms and window fronts follow the same standardised system approach. Each complex’s architecture and facade incorporate individual touches and are constructed to the highest quality standards, integrating seamlessly into their surroundings. The Cureus system approach also prioritises sustainability, both in terms of a care home’s long-term economic viability and its impact on the environment. All Cureus care homes are, for example, constructed in accordance with the KfW 40 energy-efficiency standard, while the bulk procurement of floor coverings and elevator systems, for example, ensures cost synergies and long-term maintenance contracts covering several properties also reduce costs for care home operators. The constant review and optimisation of the Cureus system care home standard guarantees the construction of care homes that truly meet demand.
