Hamburg/Ulm/Gladbeck, 5 August 2022. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in creating and actively managing its own care home portfolio, and the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group, the future operator of SCHÖNES LEBEN Gladbeck im Zentrum, invited guests to a summer fete on the new residence’s construction site yesterday. The 70 guests included Friedhelm Horbach, chair of the Seniors’ Advisory Council of the city of Gladbeck.

Given last year’s coronavirus restrictions, it had not been possible to celebrate the laying of the foundation stone or the topping-out ceremony. The recent summer fete therefore presented the first opportunity for guests to gain a comprehensive insight into the project and see for themselves just how quickly construction works are progressing. In addition to the ceremonial placement of the time capsule, the fete’s guests were also provided with in-depth information on the future senior residence and a tour of the site and the four buildings under construction. A food truck was also on hand to ensure that guests could enjoy a delicious selection of food and drink after the ceremony. The construction site is located at Wilhelmstraße 12–18 (even numbers), 45964 Gladbeck. Cureus is acting as general contractor.

“Our project is progressing quickly and according to plan”, says Alexander Riedel, project manager at Cureus. “With the completion of the building shells and the roofs, we can now focus on the interior work and also turn our attention to finishing the facade work before winter sets in. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the construction for the great work they are doing. It is primarily thanks to their efforts that we are on track for completion and handover to our accomplished partner, the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group, spring 2023”.

“We are already registering a great deal of interest in our exclusive assisted living apartments at SCHÖNES LEBEN Gladbeck im Zentrum”, reports Kip Sloane, Managing Director of SCHÖNES LEBEN Wohnen. “From spring 2023, the most discerning seniors will find a real home in this central location, a place where they can live self-determined lives in comfort and experience the highest quality care. In our stylish new complex, residents will enjoy a unique sense of well-being and a combination of comfort, security and sociability, perfectly rounded off with a comprehensive range of services. Our residents can look forward to a wide range of cultural and sporting services, delicious cuisine in our in-house public restaurant, household assistance, qualified outpatient care and support, car sharing and much more besides, depending, of course, on their individual needs”, adds Kip Sloane.
