St. Elisabeth-Verein Marburg takes over the management of the “Senioren- und Pflegeheim Elisabeth GmbH”. “It was important for us to find a good successor for our beautiful facility – especially with regard to our team and our guests,” says Ines Perri, nursing service manager and previous managing director of the senior facility and daughter of Elisabeth and Eugenio Perri, who founded the home in Niederweimar’s Schützenstraße almost 40 years ago. “Throughout the years, we’ve done everything we can to make our team, guests, family members and families feel comfortable and at home.” Therefore, the seamless transition in the sponsorship of the “Senioren- und Pflegeheim Elisabeth GmbH” as of June 1, 2022 was “a matter of the heart.” Her brother Marco Perri, home director and previous managing director, continues: “The St. Elisabeth Association, which is well positioned in several areas of social work not only in Marburg, convinced us with its overall appearance. We are delighted to have found this partner for the facility.”

In 1983, the Elisabeth Niederweimar Senior Citizens’ and Nursing Home was founded by the Perri family and has been run as a family business ever since, currently offering 44 places for full inpatient care, but also short-term care. On June 1, 2022, St. Elisabeth-Verein Marburg will become the shareholder of “Senioren- und Pflegeheim Elisabeth GmbH” in Niederweimar. Responsibility for care will initially remain with the existing GmbH, whose managing director will be Oliver Pappert. Due to his management activities at Altenhilfe St. Elisabeth gGmbH, a subsidiary of St. Elisabeth-Verein Marburg, he brings with him the necessary prerequisites, also to initiate the next steps: “In the next few months, due to our proximity to the Diakonie, we will try to introduce collectively agreed remuneration for the employees, based on the guidelines of the Diakonie Kurhessen-Waldeck.” In the long term, Altenhilfe St. Elisabeth gGmbH will also take over operations, but this may take years to come. “We are delighted to be able to expand our range of elderly care services in the region with such a traditional family business – a task we are particularly looking forward to.”

For Pappert, recruiting skilled nursing staff remains an important task. The addition of the home in Niederweimar has further increased the attractiveness of Altenhilfe St. Elisabeth gGmbH as an employer, and not just because of this family business: “We now also have an even broader regional base and can offer our employees a wide range of opportunities.”
“The family charm and the good quality of care and attention to the residents will continue to be the mainstay of the operation of this facility.
We are looking forward to this task and to the constant qualitative expansion of our full inpatient care services,” says Pappert.
