Eisenach, 27.09.2023. Wilhelm Augusta Soziale Dienste gemeinnützige GmbH (gGmbH) with administrative headquarters in Eisenach, which operates the Lutherhaus and Vogelshof senior center in Schleusingen, has filed an insolvency petition with the competent district court in Meiningen due to impending insolvency. The court granted the application by order dated 25.09.2023 and appointed attorney Marcello Di Stefano from the law firm DiLigens Rechtsanwälte & Insolvenzverwalter in Eisenach as provisional insolvency administrator. Together with his team led by attorney Robert Jödicke, he is currently obtaining an overview of the company and its economic situation.

Unrestricted continuation of operations

Meanwhile, business operations at the Luther House will continue without restriction. The residents of the retirement home need not worry. They will continue to be reliably and fully cared for, looked after and provided for. Meals away from home, including meals on wheels, will also continue in full.

Ultimate goal: continuation and preservation

"We are working at full speed to find a solution to preserve the company with the senior center in Schleusingen and safeguard jobs. To this end, we are examining all options under consideration and are holding talks with all parties involved. This also includes the search for a new investor," says the provisional insolvency administrator, attorney Marcello Di Stefano. In this difficult phase, the company needs above all its committed employees. Every day, they provide high-quality and indispensable services with great personal dedication to people in need, emphasizes the specialist lawyer for insolvency and reorganization law.

Employees informed immediately

The provisional insolvency administrator informed employees in detail about the insolvency proceedings and the next steps at a works meeting on September 27, 2023. The wages and salaries of the total of around 80 employees are secured for the months of September, October and November 2023 via insolvency benefits from the German Federal Employment Agency.

Increased costs are the cause of the insolvency application

Like many other nursing homes, the facility is suffering from increased personnel costs and equally increased energy costs. The economic difficulties have worsened in recent months. As a result, the management filed for insolvency.
