New nursing home for the elderly in Friedberg about to open – Mayor visits facility
Centrally located in the heart of Friedberg, a new nursing home for senior citizens has been built in recent years on the site of a former car dealership. Recently, HBB Managing Director Oliver Radünz, representing the investor, together with the facility manager Carolin-Babett Erler and other colleagues, welcomed Friedberg Mayor Dirk Antkowiak to the new premises of “Domicil Friedberg” at Mainzer-Tor-Anlage 44a and Carl-Damm-Strasse respectively.
“Clear shapes and lots of daylight are the main features of our new facility. Likewise all important infrastructural offers in Friedberg are well and fast attainable – faithfully our enterprise guiding principle ?in the center in the life ?, explained Radünz and Erler to the delegation from the city administration. HBB, which has built and owns 42 similar facilities throughout Germany, also looked back on the fast and smooth planning and approval process at this location.
The head of the city’s Office for Social and Cultural Services and Facilities, Christine Böhmerl, along with her deputy Sebastian Dein and Simone Köhl, the clerk responsible with him for Friedberg’s senior citizens, were happy to come and inspect the new facility with the mayor:
“We are particularly interested in getting to know the facility management and the structure of the new senior residence in order to establish networking contacts with the actors known to us in the Friedberg senior citizens’ advisory council and the senior citizens’ clubs and, on the other hand, to be able to provide our citizens in the town hall with appropriate information about care offerings in Friedberg,” said the representatives of the city administration.
The Domicil staff then gave the municipal delegation a tour of the newly built premises and explained the different types of rooms and care services, which range from light to heavy care in all degrees of care to short-term and respite care and are individually tailored to the needs of the residents.
In addition to 93 single and 20 double rooms, the building contains numerous modern therapy and common rooms, a separate dementia ward, a ballroom with a conservatory, several balconies and terraces with garden furniture and – also thanks to the beautifully landscaped garden – allows a wide variety of events to be held virtually all year round.
In the future, a total of around 80 full-time positions will be employed here in a wide variety of functions for the facility – in addition to nursing care, for example, also in the in-house canteen kitchen, which in the medium term will also offer lunch for external guests, as well as in the in-house laundry and building cleaning, which in turn will significantly reduce transport routes and the volume of traffic due to the tasks not being outsourced to external service providers.
The “Domicil” will officially open in about 4 weeks and interested parties and applicants for care places can call 040 / 70 70 77 500 to find out about the places still available and the conditions of the facility or to arrange to view a sample room.
“Numerous advance reservations have already been made, but we still have some space at the beginning, of course,” explained facility manager Erler when asked by the city council, who wished Domicil a good start:
“I am very pleased that we now have another strong provider for senior care in Friedberg with you and thus take account of demographic change and am still quite enthusiastic about this great building complex, which fits wonderfully into the surrounding development,” concluded Mayor Dirk Antkowiak.
