Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Alfter, 8 January 2024. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own care home portfolio, has completed the new Libento Seniorenresidenz Alfter in the new Bahnhofstrasse residential quarter currently under construction at Bahnhofstrasse 6b in 53347 Alfter (North Rhine-Westphalia) and handed it over to the operator Libento Seniorenresidenzen GmbH. The opening is planned for February 2024. The general contractor is Zenz Massivhaus GmbH from Cochem.
"The new senior residence has been built in accordance to our modern standard of system care real homes," explains Sebastian Warz, the project manager responsible at Cureus. "This standard focuses on the needs of the residents and is designed to ensure that they not only receive excellent care, but also feel comfortable in and with the building. We would like to thank everyone involved in the construction and our operating partner Libento Seniorenresidenzen, and wish them a good time in this sustainably designed property."
"In Alfter, too, our care services are in line with the approach 'Humane. Courageous. Together.'," says Andrea Willigerod, Managing Director of Libento Seniorenresidenzen. "We want to be part of the community. Environmental awareness and sustainability also play a major role for us. We promote a culture of active participation and involve all relevant stakeholders: our residents, their relatives, our employees and the residents around our facilities. We also practice an open house concept, which makes some of the services offered by our senior residence accessible to the neighbourhood in order to create the strongest possible social links between the residents and the residential environment."
Opening planned for February 2024 – last remaining care and workplaces still available
The new senior residence will open directly in February 2024. There are also still a few vacant care places available for full inpatient long-term and short-term care. Interested residents and employees can contact Libento on 02254 84 99 0 or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). The complex has created over 80 new and crisis-proof jobs in nursing, social care, administration, building services and housekeeping in the kitchen, laundry and cleaning departments.
Sustainable building with strong resident orientation and a comprehensive range of services
Libento Seniorenresidenz Alfter consists of three full storeys, a recessed top floor and a basement, with a total of around 5,600 square metres of living, usable and communal space. Each of the 95 modern single rooms – 65 of which are fully wheelchair accessible – are equipped with their own bathrooms as well as telephone, internet and television connection. Residents have the option of furnishing the rooms themselves, allowing them to add their own personal touches and create a real feeling of home. The residence accommodates one residential living group on the ground and recessed storey and two on each of the two full storeys. Each residential living group has its own kitchen/living room and terrace or balcony. The communal living area on the ground floor is specially designed for dementia patients with direct access to the garden, which is specifically designed for their needs and includes, for example, spiral paths so that residents can move around safely even without supervision. In addition, the ground-floor restaurant with a terrace and a fresh food kitchen will welcome residents, guests and members of the general public, opening up the building to the surrounding neighbourhood. A lounge-style fireplace room with a library, a hair salon and an in-house laundry round off the attractive selection of amenities for residents. The property’s spacious terraces connects the living areas with the attractive garden, thereby enhancing the recreational quality for all residents with exercise areas and quiet zones. In addition to the residents’ rooms, another residential group with eight short-term care places has been created on the top floor, while another eight residential units were also realised as staff apartments.
Libento Seniorenresidenz Alfter is located close to Alfter Castle in a new residential area that is currently being developed between Bahnhofstraße and Görresbach. Shopping facilities, doctors and social and cultural venues are all easily accessible in the surrounding area. The nearby bus stop and the property’s ten car and five bicycle parking spaces combine to ensure optimal transport connections for both visitors and staff.
Building in accordance with high-quality, individual standard
The new building has been 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, most of the rooms have 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’, 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.
