Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Sundern-Amecke, 4 August 2023. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own care home portfolio, completed at the end of July 2023 the new Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke and handed it over to the operator Curavie Seniorenresidenzen, a cluster of Pflegemotive. The property was built within a construction period of around 19 months at Amecker Str. 34 in 59846 Sundern. Cureus itself acted as general contractor in the project.

"With the senior residence, we were able to build urgently needed, modern care places in Sundern-Amecke," explains Uwe Poganiatz-Heine, project manager at Cureus. "For the new building, we followed our unique approach of the system care home. We are sure that this will provide the future residents and staff of the Curavie residence with an optimal building for everyday care and wish them a good time in it. We would also like to thank everyone involved in the construction for the smooth handling of the project."

"We are very pleased that we will soon be able to admit the first residents. The furnishing has already been completed, the kitchen and laundry are ready for use. Now the service rooms and everything are being prepared for the first move-ins. The first employees already started in March this year and were prepared for their tasks and the processes in the house by the central quality management," Susanne Thon, managing director of Curavie Seniorenresidenzen, is enthusiastic. "In Amecke, we will combine modern care with a warm community and offer a versatile range of care from fully inpatient and short-term care, which also takes into account people with dementia. Otherwise, the residence is designed as an open house: A lunch table will also be offered for the neighbourhood and various events of the house will be open to the public."

Opening in August 2023

The final preparations for the opening are currently underway, and free care places are still available. A few new employees are also still being sought for the areas of nursing, care and housekeeping. In total, about 60 modern and crisis-proof jobs have been created in the residence.

Sustainable residence with a focus on the well-being of the residents

A modern senior residence with 80 care places has been built on the approx. 5,300 square metre site. The residence is barrier-free, built to the sustainable Efficiency House 40 standard and will accommodate a partial basement, three full stories and a recessed top floor. Heating is supplied by an environmentally-friendly combined heat and power plant (CHP), which will also generate electricity for the senior residence. The modern, rectilinear facade will be an architectural eye-catcher and, with its attractive colour scheme and brickwork first floor, the property will blend harmoniously with its surroundings.

Each of the residence’s 80 single rooms is barrier-free, designed according to modern standards, and is equipped with a private bathroom and an internet, telephone and television connection. Residents will also be given the opportunity to equip their rooms with private furniture and accessories. The living area on the ground floor has been specially designed to meet the needs of residents with dementia and offers direct access to the garden and large sun terrace. The outdoor facilities in this area include a dementia garden, which has circular paths to allow residents to move around safely, even when they are unaccompanied. The spacious and park-like outdoor facilities are also open to all residents for exercise, relaxation and socialising.

The Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke has a gross floor area (GFA) of around 5,100 square metres. In addition to the six living groups, each with its own kitchen and recreation facilities, the residence also includes a restaurant with a fresh food kitchen that will be open to the public, an in-house laundry, a hair salon as well as a lounge with fireplace and library.

Central location for good connection

The new senior residence is located in the Amecke district of Sundern, on the banks of the Sorpe River and Lake Sorpe with a small harbour and dining facilities. Shops and transport connections to the centre of Sundern and its doctors and social amenities, are only a few minutes’ walk away. The grounds of the senior residence also accommodate 18 parking spaces (including 3 wheelchair-accessible parking spaces) and bicycle parking facilities, guaranteeing outstanding accessibility for visitors and nursing staff.

Optimal location and high-quality, modern construction standards

The new Curavie senior residence is situated in the southern part of the town of Meinerzhagen. In addition to enjoying direct access to the surrounding countryside, residents can also reach the town centre, home to supermarkets, doctors’ practices, social amenities and the local church, are all moments away by bus. The new residence is optimally connected with all of the towns and communities in the surrounding area. In order to ensure optimal accessibility for visitors and care givers, bicycle parking spaces and 25 car parking spaces will be created on the complex’s grounds.

High-quality construction to proprietary Cureus standard

The new Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke has been designed and build in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This is based on uniform, high quality standards and is oriented, among other things, to the requirements of care home operators, with an added focus on the residents and care staff. In this way, all structural processes and properties are optimised, from the inside to the outside: This includes, for example, the size and arrangement of rooms to optimise space and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility: corridors always receive as much daylight as possible; every room has floor-to-ceiling windows, and the modern bathrooms and window fronts always follow the same standardised system approach. Each property’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. For example, all Cureus care homes target the KfW Efficiency House 40 standard, while the bulk procurement of floor coverings and elevator systems, for example, achieves 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.
