St. Antonius home, Kemnath
Opening: December 2018
Surrounded by the Fichtelgebirge and Steinwald nature parks, Kemnath is regarded as the economic and cultural centre of the Western Upper Palatinate district of Tirschenreuth. The site combines traditional ambience with all the advantages of modern living and provides ideal conditions for enjoying an active evening. Located close to both the city centre and to nature, the St. Antonius home is only about a ten-minute walk from downtown Kemnath, which boasts pharmacies, doctors’ practices, hairdressers, shops and cafés. With a bus stop in the immediate vicinity, destinations further away are also quickly and easily accessible.
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 cozy get-together in more familiar company.
