Hamburg/Winsen(Aller)/Delbrück, 30 September 2021. Cureus GmbH as the residence’s owner and Lavendio as its future operator joined forces Wednesday to present the currently under construction Curavie senior residence in Delbrück (Rietberger Straße 3, 33129 Delbrück) as part of a foundation stone laying ceremony with a tour of the construction site. In addition to Delbrück’s mayor Werner Peitz, attendees included Claudia Grundmeier, the site’s former owner, as well as craftsmen, project stakeholders, local politicians and members of the community. Catering was provided and the guests expressed a great deal of interest in the new senior residence and the 80 modern care places it will provide later next year.
“Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we were only able to organise the traditional foundation stone laying ceremony now”, explains Fabian Krüger, Project Manager at Cureus. “Right now, we are entirely on schedule with the construction of the second floor. Nevertheless, we have still found a suitable place for our time capsule. As long as everything proceeds as planned, we will be successfully handing over the completed property to our operating partner Curavie in the autumn of 2022”.
“We are seeing a steady increase in demand for modern care places in Delbrück and are ready to meet this demand with our new residence”, says Susanne Thon, Managing Director of Curavie Seniorenresidenzen. “Thanks to our extensive experience in the senior residence sector, we can already promise our future residents the best possible care and excellent working conditions for our future caregiving staff”.
“We are delighted to see our old family property given a new lease of life”, says Claudia Grundmeier, the former owner of the site, which used to be home to the Grundmeier flower store and nursery. “The very central location and the attractive surroundings will certainly provide added value for future residents”.
Modern residence with a wide range of services
By autumn 2022, the 5,000-square-metre site will accommodate a new nursing home with 80 care places for long- and short-term inpatient care. The building will have a basement, three full floors and a recessed top floor. In addition, nine barrier-free rental units are planned in a separately accessible section of the building for the property’s former owner. These units will be particularly spacious, ranging from 46 to 66 square metres and future tenants will be able to take advantage of the services provided by the neighbouring Curavie Senior Residence in Delbrück.
The senior residence will have a gross floor area of around 6,350 square metres and each of the 80 barrier-free and wheelchair-accessible single rooms will be equipped with their own modern bathrooms. Two living groups will be housed on the first and second floors. Another two living groups will be accommodated on the ground floor and the recessed top floor. Highlights on the top floor include excellent views over Delbrück and units for couples. The living group on the ground floor is specially designed to meet the needs of dementia patients and offer direct access to the garden, which is tailored specifically to dementia patients’ needs. The garden’s paths, for example, are laid out in a spiral so that residents can move around safely even without supervision. All residents will be able to use the spacious, park-like outdoor facilities for exercise, relaxation and socialising. Each of the residence’s six living groups will have its own kitchen and lounge area, providing a focal point for social activities and helping to foster a family-like ambience for the residents.
The in-house restaurant with freshly prepared meals and an adjoining terrace, along with the café, hair salon and cosy fireside lounge, are open not only to residents but also to members of the local community to visit and meet.
Prospective residents and potential employees are welcome to contact Curavie on 05143 98 100 from May 2022. The new residence will create c. 65 new and secure, long-term jobs in Delbrück.
Central location and outstanding accessibility
The residence’s quiet but central location is no more than a few minutes’ walk from the central Delbrück, the town hall, shops, doctors and social services. The nearby bus stop and 24 new parking spaces on the grounds of the senior residence, two of which are fully accessible, guarantee easy accessibility for visitors and care staff.
High-quality construction to proprietary Cureus standard
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. This concerns, for example, the size and arrangement of rooms to optimize space 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 that provide attractive views of the surrounding area, 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. Th 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 or 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.
