The architecture of the senior's residence provides open space and freedom so that the residents can live as self-determined as possible.
A comfortable environment and good care, which includes both care and accommodation, is the guiding principle of the Senior's Residence Philosophenweg in Wetzlar. the architecture of the new building is in classic modern style. The senior's residence was designed by architecture firm Rohrbach and Schmees from Giessen. A great deal of importance was placed on the quality, high-grade products when outfitting the establishment, which corresponds with the premium concept of the senior's residence. A rooftop garden restaurant, commonly used lounge area, a fireside lounge and a library are among the many amenities that the house has to offer. Living and care belong together and have an influence on well-being. The organizers have made it their goal to enable participation in social life for every resident, no matter what their care needs may be. The interior furnishings are intended to convey security as well as comfort.
The residents have the choice between single or double room apartments. The layouts are spacious in size - the smallest living unit is 22 m2.
The furnishings can be selected individually, even personal furnishings can be integrated in the room's furnishings as personal memorabilia, so that the resident does not need to give up the lifestyle they are used to. All rooms have a barrier-free bathroom with high-grade outfitting.
Safety and support in the bathroom.
Not only were investments made in outfitting the building, but also in the quality of life that the high-grade ambiance offers. Supporting fold-down handles were installed in the bathrooms that give residents security and support their independence. All materials were WARM TOUCH selected - these are synthetic material products that are coated to have a chrome look. They have the appearance of high-shine chrome. In contrast to the products with a metal surface, the supporting fold-down handles have a warm surface, making them comfortable to hold for people with increased sensitivity to cold, for instance patients with rheumatism.
