We could, of course, just quote facts and figures under the About us heading - but in our view, there is more to MÜNCHENSTIFT than just figures and KPIs. So we decided to write about the heart and soul of MÜNCHENSTIFT instead. And about who we really are.
We are by no means an ordinary care and nursing home operator, nor do we intend to become one!
Heart and soul
We are a team of around 2,000 unique people. Although our trades range from janitors and cooks to caregivers and administration officers, and we work in different places such as Schwabing, Laim and Bogenhausen, we are all
- Helpers and supporters of independent-minded elderly residents
- Carers for people with dementia
- Co-inhabitants and organisers of events in the Munich districts
- Helpers with an open ear for family caregivers
- Hand holders and companions at the end of life’s journey
- Counsellors and shoulders to lean on for novices
"I stand for the fact that our values are lived. Our quality awareness is tangible for the people who live with us. Treating each other with respect is a matter of course and we perceive the diversity in our residences as an enrichment."
Managing Director of MÜNCHENSTIFT
MÜNCHENSTIFT's Annual Report 2020 is - how could it be otherwise - completely dominated by the Corona pandemic. Although the continuous development of the company, the projects, the services and the quality of care in the company was overshadowed by the unfortunately necessary crisis management for much of the year, forward-looking steps were taken again this year. In part, they were even accelerated by the crisis, such as digitalisation.
MÜNCHENSTIFT is there for everyone in Munich - including LGBTIQ* seniors. For several years, MÜNCHENSTIFT has been on the way to opening up its care and assistance for people from the LGBTIQ* community. Thanks to the personnel costs subsidy for the project management granted by the Social Department of the City of Munich, MÜNCHENSTIFT is able to continue and expand the process of opening up and implement diversity in a sustainable way.
The year 2021 was marked by the challenge of dealing with the Corona pandemic. Particularly in long-term care, there is a special responsibility towards the vulnerable risk group of people in need of care and assistance. Dealing with this situation and the frequently changing requirements demanded a great deal of creativity and perseverance. It is therefore understandable that the milestones described in the concept for the year 2021 had to be partly adjusted.
This report shows how MÜNCHENSTIFT nevertheless succeeded in keeping diversity issues alive and visible in 2021. Of particular importance in the reporting year was the exhibition project "Courage of the generations. Lesbian self-image in changing times" and the conception of a supply chain for LGBTIQ* seniors.
As an EMAS organisation, MÜNCHENSTIFT conducts an open dialogue on environmental issues. To this end, we publish an annual EMAS environmental statement for all our facilities that have been certified according to EMAS. In these EMAS environmental statements, we report on all relevant environmental impacts as well as which environmental goals we have achieved.
