Hamburg/Hanover/Neuruppin, 7 April 2022. Cureus, an integrated property company specialising in care homes, which builds new properties for its own portfolio, and MEDIKO, the SCHÖNES LEBEN Gruppe’s care specialist and future operator of the senior residence in Neuruppin, yesterday celebrated the topping-out ceremony and presented the new residence in more detail. Approximately 70 guests attended the ceremony, including craftspeople, neighbours, project stakeholders, local politicians and municipal representatives. Catering was provided and there was a great deal of interest in the new MEDIKO Seniorenresidenz Neuruppin. Construction is underway on the site at Artur-Becker-Straße 6 in 16816 Neuruppin, where Cureus is serving as general contractor.

“Construction is well on schedule and we wanted to celebrate reaching this important stage of the project together with our guests and, above all, the teams involved in construction”, says a delighted Karim Abdel-Rehim, the project manager overseeing the project at Cureus. “With the completion of the roof, we can now move on to the residence’s interior and are largely independent of the weather moving forwards. I am optimistic that we will be able to hand the residence over to our proven operating partner MEDIKO in autumn 2022 as planned”.

“Our focus is on helping to meet the rising demand for care facilities and providing valuable support for our country’s seniors”, says Christian Cohausz, CEO of MEDIKO Pflege- und Gesundheitszentren. “Once our new senior residence opens its doors, Neuruppin will benefit from a state-of-the-art care home with a feel-good atmosphere, characterised by high-quality, age-appropriate interiors and attractive architecture, combined with welcoming, modern and senior-friendly living areas. And, thanks to our ‘open residence’ concept, we will be promoting social and community relations between the residents and members of the local community. In addition to quality care and nursing, we offer an attractive program of events and leisure activities to ensure that our residents feel completely at home”.

Reservations for care places are now being accepted and a number of places are still available. Prospective residents can request more information from MEDIKO’s head office in Hanover by telephone (0511 357 38 - 100) or email: info@seniorenresidenz-neuruppin.de.

Potential employees can also submit their applications by email to info@seniorenresidenz-neuruppin.de. The new senior residence will create more than 80 new and secure, full- and part-time jobs in Neuruppin. Employees are now being recruited for residence’s inauguration. Vacancies primarily include nursing specialists and nursing assistants, as well as care and service staff.

“Despite the tight labour market and intense competition, we are very optimistic that we will succeed in attracting employees from Neuruppin and the surrounding area”, explains Christian Cohausz. “MEDIKO is an attractive and dependable employer and operates in a crisis-proof, fast-growing industry. In addition to permanent employment contracts, attractive remuneration and a wealth of training and development opportunities, we also offer our employees a wide range of perks, including shopping discounts via our employee portal, JobRad-Leasing, a subsidised company pension plan, childcare costs and travel allowances. In addition, we are creating the ideal working environment in Neuruppin. The state-of-the-art building offers will be a highly attractive place to work and feel at home in, while the latest equipment helps to facilitate the work processes”, says Christian Cohausz.

Giving care the space it needs

Many people are aware of the shortage of nursing staff and are actively implementing appropriate measures to solve the shortage, but there is little awareness of the undersupply of nursing homes. According to a recent study by bulwiengesa (found here), up to 600,000 new care places need to be built across Germany by 2040, but construction is lagging behind. Cureus is constantly on the lookout for new plots of land to implement its proprietary system approach and accelerate the construction of modern care facilities. Property offers can be sent to ankauf@cureus.de at any time.
