St. Josef home, Niederaichbach
Opening: February 2019
With around 4,000 inhabitants, Niederaichbach in the Landshut district offers the advantages of small community life and excellent transport connections at the same time, owing to its proximity to Landshut. The facility is an ideal starting point for walks and excursions, as the surrounding area offers various leisure opportunities. Located close to the city centre, the St. Josef home is only about a five-minute walk from downtown Niederaichbach, which boasts pharmacies, doctors’ practices, hairdressers, shops and cafés. The St. Josef residents can thus continue to play an active role in community life.
The facility provides space for 48 people in need of care and support. On the first, second and third floors, there are 48 one-bedroom apartments with 34m² floor space. If necessary, the apartments can be turned into two-bedroom apartments (e.g. for married couples).
All apartments are designed for senior citizens – they ensure accessibility for the disabled, feature a spacious wheelchair-friendly shower, toilet, space for a nursing bed and nursing aids, a kitchenette, separate bells and letter boxes. The décor and design can be chosen completely freely according to the residents’ own wishes and needs.
The facility has two day-care units which, with a surface area of 300-500 m², are far above the statutory minimum standards. The day-care units offer room for a total of 60 people in need of nursing and general care and are geared to the needs of the day-care guests. They offer space for cooking and eating meals, employment, leisure and group activities as well as areas for retreat and rest or cosy get-together in more familiar company.
