Special Forms of Living

In-Patient Living Offerings

We enable, encourage or support people with disabilities to master their everyday lives, assert themselves confidently in society and to make them as independent as possible from external assistance.

We have therefore created two special forms of living for people with an increased need of support, the Haus am Querschlag and Permanent Living [Dauerwohnen], which is directly linked to the P.A.N. Center.

In-patient, as outpatient as possible.

Haus Am Querschlag

The Haus Am Querschlag is located in the green Berlin-Reinickendorf in a quiet street in the Frohnau neighbourhood. A total of 14 people with physical and multiple disabilities live here.

We operate the Haus Am Querschlag according to the principle of “in-patient when necessary, and outpatient as much as possible”. In terms of social law, it is a special form of living with round the clock care. The conceptual approach of the Haus Am Querschlag aims at promoting the clients’ participation, social space orientation and self-determination.

The Haus Am Querschlag is directly connected to a residential community on the same plot via a large internal courtyard. Together, they form the “Querschlag Quarter” of the Fürst Donnersmarck Foundation. There is space for joint events and activities in the internal courtyard with a view onto the countryside.

What the Haus am Querschlag Offers You

  • Individual living
  • A furnished modern apartment with its own large bathroom. The furnishings in the apartment can be changed upon request.
  • Support and care around the clock
  • Social-education support
  • Care support from staff of the outpatient service
  • Individual leisure organisation and daily structure
  • A modern facility with a multifunction room for therapies or cosy group evenings and a large, green internal courtyard
  • A beautiful location in the Reinickendorf district

You will find a detailed description of our concept here.

The Location

The Haus Am Querschlag is located in the green Berlin-Reinickendorf, in the Frohnau neighbourhood. From there, the clients can get to the center of Frohnau in a few minutes with plenty of accessible shops, shopping opportunities and services.

Medical care is provided by specialist doctors’ surgeries very close by. The doctors will also make house visits if necessary. To maintain the clients’ physical development we cooperate closely with external therapeutic practices. The clients find employment in the nearby “Nordbahn Werkstatt für Menschen mit Behinderung” [Nordbahn Workshop for People with Disabilities] or as part of an individual local offering.

The Haus Am Querschlag itself is located on a large plot of land with an attractive garden behind the house. All of the clients live in their own apartments with bathrooms. The rooms are partially furnished, but can be adapted to individuals’ ideas. Large, bright group and leisure areas round off the offering, enabling an individual life in the community.
