Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Melle, 1 December 2022. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own care home portfolio, has completed the new Lavendio Seniorenresidenz Melle at Kosakenallee 11 in 49324 Melle (Lower Saxony) and handed it over to its operator, Lavendio. The general contractor was MBN GmbH.

Carsten Völkerding, Branch Manager of MBN, is delighted: “Once again, in close collaboration with Cureus, we have completed and handed over a modern system care home, developed on schedule and in accordance with the unique Cureus approach. We are pleased to have created an important new facility that enhances the local infrastructure in Melle”.

"The new senior residence was completed on schedule and to the highest architectural standards”, says Uwe Poganiatz-Heine, project manager at Cureus. “Modern and spacious rooms with generous glazing and a bright, welcoming facade make this complex a home to feel good in. And with Lavendio as the residence’s operator, we have recognised experts ready to provide the best in individual care and nursing. We would like to thank everyone involved in the construction for making sure the entire process ran smoothly and wish the future residents and the Lavendio team all the best in their new residence!”

“It is a great pleasure for us to be able to take over the new Lavendio senior residence in Melle on schedule”, says Elvira Schulze, Managing Director of Lavendio Seniorenresidenzen. “We have created an open house with a hotel-style ambience, where neighbours will also be welcome as soon as the coronavirus situation allows. We are committed to providing best-in-class care to our residents and to creating a pleasant working environment for our staff – and this modern new building, our extensive range of care services and the residence’s richly varied and landscaped gardens will all play their part in allowing us to do just that”.

Places still available – new team members still wanted

The last few care places are still available for permanent, short-term, holiday and respite care, as well as for residents with dementia and for palliative care. Furthermore, the completion of the Lavendio senior residence in Melle will create about 100 new and secure jobs and there are still a small number of vacancies to be filled in nursing and housekeeping.

Modern senior residence with restaurant, laundry, hair and chiropody salon, and spacious gardens in prime location

The barrier-free building with three full floors and a recessed top floor has been designed and built to the sustainable KfW-40 energy-efficiency standard and has now been handed over. The flat roof is largely greened and heating is supplied by an environmentally-friendly combined heat and power plant (CHP), which also generates electricity for the residence. The modern, rectilinear facade is an architectural eye-catcher and, with its attractive colour scheme, the property blends harmoniously with its surroundings. Each of the 126 modern single rooms is equipped with its own bathroom and a selection of rooms are equipped as comfort rooms with higher-quality furnishings. Residents can furnish their rooms with their own furniture and accessories if they wish. In addition, 38 of the rooms are fully wheelchair accessible. The residence features a range of amenities, including a restaurant with fresh cuisine, an in-house laundry, a hair and chiropody salon, a fireside lounge with a library, and therapy rooms. The spacious outdoor facilities are also available to all residents for exercise, relaxation and socialising. The new senior residence is set on the banks of the River Laerbach, only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Melle, which is home to the town hall, shops, doctors’ practices, and social services.
