Hamburg/Winsen(Aller)/Sundern-Amecke, 19 September 2022. Cureus, an active portfolio holder that specialises in developing its own care home portfolio, and Curavie as the new residence’s future operator, invited around 40 guests to join them to celebrate the topping-out ceremony for Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke (Amecker Str. 34 in 59846 Sundern) on Friday. The traditional ceremony featured a topping-out wreath, speeches, and the hammering in of the final nail into the roof structure. The ceremony took place in the presence of Eberhard Freiherr von Wrede, member of the parish council of St. Hubertus Amecke and representative of the building plot’s former owner. Visitors enjoyed food and drink after the ceremony and were keen to find out more about the new senior residence, which Cureus will integrate into its care home portfolio upon completion.

Eberhard Freiherr von Wrede was clearly delighted: “The dimensions of the future Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke are now clearly visible and we can all see how well it complements its surroundings. The new residence’s opening day is fast approaching. It won’t be long until completion and the added value that the residence will bring to residents and our community”.

“We are looking forward to getting the building shell weather-tight on schedule and in good time for autumn”, says Alexander Riedel, project manager at Cureus. “With the roof completed, we can then turn our attention the interior and are largely independent of the weather for the next stages of the project”.

“Piece by piece, it is amazing to see this new, state-of-the-art care home take shape here”, says Susanne Thon, Managing Director of Curavie Seniorenresidenzen, enthusiastically. “We are already looking forward to welcoming the first residents in summer 2023 and to building a community in a warm, welcoming atmosphere together with our new employees”.

Recruitment is underway, allocation of care places to start in January 2023

The new residence is expected to create around 60 new and secure jobs in nursing, administration, building services and catering. Prospective employees can already register their interest in open positions with Curavie now by sending a message to bewerbung@curavie-pflege.de.

Details of the new Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke

More detailed information about the new Curavie Seniorenresidenz Amecke and its 80 modern care places for long- and short-term inpatient care can be found under the following link in our 19 August 2021 press release. Completion to the KfW-40 energy-efficiency standard is scheduled for summer 2023.

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 (find 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.
