RECA | CONNECTS. PERFORMS. INSPIRES.
True to this motto, the new senior citizens’ mobile was handed over by the company RECA NORM GmbH to the Protestant church community of Kupferzell on 21 July 2022. Thomas Häusele, spokesman of the management board, and fleet employee Michael Gehringer handed over the keys of the brand new vehicle to Raphael Häfele, the pastor of the evangelical parish of Kupferzell, and to the drivers of the senior citizens’ mobile.
Since 2007, the senior citizens’ mobile has been on the road as a community project for the senior citizens of the Kupferzell parish. The whole thing was made possible by the donation and maintenance of the vehicle by the company RECA NORM GmbH. Personnel costs are covered by donations and the nursing association of the Evangelical Parish of Kupferzell. The parish office in Kupferzell is responsible for the organisation.
The Kupferzell senior citizens’ mobile has become a permanent institution and is already in its fourth generation. The Caravelle VW bus is made available to the parish free of charge for trips by members of the nursing association. The aim is to improve the mobility of older people in Kupferzell so that they can live at home for longer.
The Seniorenmobil can be requested by telephone and picks up the senior citizens at home. This way, they arrive safely and on time for their appointments with the doctor, for Monday coffee at the deaconry, for lunch or for shopping. Around 65 to 70 people from Kupferzell use the Seniorenmobil every week. The senior citizens’ mobile is on the road for about 60 hours a month. It is perfectly equipped for the seniors with a retractable step, optimised handles, auxiliary heating for the cold season and much more.
The design was created by the marketing department of RECA NORM.
