Hamburg/Hanover/Greifswald, 17 September 2021. Cureus GmbH, the owner and developer of the new senior residence, together with MEDIKO, the facility’s future operator, hosted a topping-out ceremony and showcased a selection of the rooms available in the senior residence currently under construction in Greifswald (Wachholderweg 3, 4, 5/Am Elisenpark, 17491 Greifswald) today. In addition to Christian Pegel, Member of the State Parliament and Minister for Energy, Infrastructure and Digitalization in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, around 100 guests attended, including craftsmen, neighbours, project stakeholders, local politicians and members of the community. Visitors were well catered for and expressed great interest in the new MEDIKO senior residence in Greifswald and the care places and assisted living units that will soon be available.

“Since the pandemic meant that we were unable to celebrate either the laying of the foundation stone or the topping-out ceremony for the first construction phase, we have now used the topping-out ceremony in the second construction phase to provide information about the project and, of course, to thank everyone involved in the construction for their outstanding work so far”, says Yvonne von Polier, Project Manager at Cureus. The company is responsible for the development of the new quarter and will integrate it into its real estate portfolio upon completion. “We are now entering the final straight of the first construction phase and plan to complete development work in early 2022. In the summer of next year, the outpatient daycare places and the assisted living units in the two other buildings will then also be handed over to their future users”, adds von Polier.

"The increasing demand for care, support and assisted living offers for seniors are the starting point for our activities," says Christian Cohausz, Managing Director of MEDIKO. "A senior residence with a feel-good character is now also being built in Greifswald, which will be characterised by high-quality, age-appropriate interior and exterior architecture as well as friendly, modern and senior-friendly living areas. With the concept of "open residences", we promote the social and societal contacts of the residents with the local environment. At the same time, we offer an attractive programme of events and leisure activities to ensure that our residents feel completely at home."

Living and working – car places and apartments still available

The allocation of care places and the letting of the service flats has already begun. Free capacities are still available. Interested parties can obtain information from the MEDIKO head office in Hanover by calling 0511 357 38-100 or by email: info@seniorenresidenz-gtreifswald.de.

Interested employees can also apply now. In total, more than 95 new and crisis-proof jobs in full and part time will be created in Greifswald. Staff are being sought for the opening of the facility. Mainly nursing specialists and assistants as well as vacancies in the care and service areas are to be filled. "Despite the tight labour market and competition, we are very optimistic that we will succeed in attracting staff from Greifswald and the surrounding area," Christian Cohausz is convinced. "MEDIKO is an attractive and reliable employer and operates in a crisis-proof, growing industry. In addition to permanent employment contracts, attractive remuneration and numerous training and further education opportunities, we offer our employees a bouquet of additional benefits, such as shopping opportunities at top conditions via our employee portal, a subsidy for the company pension scheme, childcare costs and a travel allowance. In addition, we create optimal working conditions in Greifswald. The modern new building offers an attractive working environment where you can feel at ease, and the most modern tools and equipment facilitate the work processes," says Christian Cohausz.
