Modern senior residence with a comprehensive range of services

The compassio senior residence in Dotzheim is being built on a plot of around 5,000 square meters in an established residential area in the north-west of Wiesbaden and will have a gross floor area of around 7,450 square meters. The U-shaped building opens to the south-east onto a green inner courtyard, has a partial basement with a basement and underground parking and is embedded in the gentle slope of the plot. The sustainably planned residence is being built as an energy-optimized KfW Efficiency House 40. A photovoltaic system on the roof and a heat pump for heating and producing hot water support the building's operation in an ecologically sensible way. Some of the flat roofs will be greened. Furthermore, nesting boxes for birds and bats as well as night insect-friendly outdoor lighting are planned. The planting of new trees on the site is also part of this construction project.

The barrier-free residence extends over three full storeys and a staggered storey. There will be 95 modern care places available for future residents, 80 for long-term care and 15 for short-term care, in generously designed single rooms with their own bathroom. 38 of the rooms are wheelchair-accessible, while some rooms are more spacious as comfort rooms. Each room has its own telephone, television and internet connection. It is possible to furnish the rooms yourself to ensure privacy and as a private retreat. The rooms are divided into six independently organized living groups with their own kitchen and lounge area as well as a balcony or roof terrace to create a familiar, social atmosphere.

A residents' restaurant with kitchen and terrace is planned on the first floor of the senior residence. A hotel-style lobby with an inviting foyer, a fireside lounge with a library, a hairdresser, a modern care bathroom and therapy rooms round off the services on offer to residents.

Assisted living in 20 spacious apartments

The 20 modern assisted living apartments in the residence are spread over all five floors. They can be reached via a separate entrance in the building and an elevator. The spacious apartments are between 45 and 61 square meters in size and are suitable for one or two-person households. All apartments have a living room with cooking facilities, bedroom, private bathroom, hallway, storage room and terrace or balcony.Ideal location and optimal accessibility.

Optimal location and accessibility

Situated close to the Weilburg valley with the Mosbach stream and Aunel spring, the location is close to nature. The friendly outdoor area in the inner courtyard also invites all residents of the compassio senior residence in Dotzheim to exercise and socialize outdoors. In addition, a total of 30 car parking spaces are available here and in the underground garage, four of which are accessible for the disabled, as well as more than 40 bicycle parking spaces. Links to public transport are also guaranteed, which ensures optimal accessibility for residents, visitors and employees and connects the location perfectly with the city center. Local amenities, social and cultural facilities, churches and doctors are easily accessible in the immediate vicinity and in the city center.

Sophisticated standard ensures individuality and the highest building quality

The compassion Seniorenresidenz in Dotzheim will be designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This places great importance on uniform, high quality standards and is oriented, among other things, towards the requirements of the operators, focusing on the residents and care staff. In this way, the structural processes and all properties are optimised from the inside to the outside: 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 always 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 ‘Effizienhaus-40-Standard’ (former 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.
