Former SPD candidate for chancellor martin schulz visited the awo senior center in knetzgau on tuesday. At the invitation of state parliament candidate rene van eckert, many seniors and foreign guests took part in a breakfast with an exchange of views.
Facility manager heike schollermann introduced the house with its 82 residents in five residential groups to the visitors, among them sabine dittmar, member of the bundestag, and bernhard rub, member of the district council. The seniors are therefore fully integrated into everyday life and can lead a very individual life. There is also the "neighborhood management" project, whose director annika kuhbandner is doing everything she can to ensure that the senior center and the village grow together. In this way, the residents of the home can maintain their old contacts or make new ones, at the regular events that take place at the senior center.
Martin schulz praised the forward-looking concept of the work welfare association. In a discussion round, he answered the questions of the seniors, which mainly concerned the topics of pensions and long-term care insurance. Also into the golden book of the municipality the politician signed itself. Mayor stefan paulus was proud to be able to bury schulz with his extraordinary european commitment and thanked him for valuing the work of the nursing professions.
