Well-Being at the Lebenscampus – SINCE OCTOBER 2022!
A NEW HOME FOR OLDER INDIVIDUALS IN A MULTIFACETED NEIGHBOURHOOD
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten in Vienna’s 12th district of Meidling was built in 2022 and is open to all people who seek professional and empathetic care.
Our goal is to secure and support our residents’ individual quality of life while also providing ample latitude for freedom and personal responsibility. Our qualified and committed nursing and support staff ensure a safe and emotionally secure environment. Celebrations, outings, and group activities make for variety and good cheer in everyday life.
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten provides all levels of nursing care and assisted living beneath a single roof—so that if a resident’s health status changes, they need not leave their accustomed surroundings.
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten – Well-Being at the Lebenscampus is a recognized facility of the ViennaSocial Fund, for which reason it is possible to apply for financial support from the City of Vienna to help cover costs.

In an independent Studie conducted in 2022 by the employer review website kununu in cooperation with the magazine freundin ÖJAB once again ranked among Austria’s five most family-friendly companies in the “Health/Social & Care” category. Respondents rated working atmosphere, supervisor behavior, work-life balance, pay, career prospects / further training, and equal opportunities as well as family-friendly offerings like flexible working hours, remote work opportunities, childcare, and employer-sponsored pension plans.
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten includes assisted living and nursing space for 214 residents.
This new building is attractive for its inviting, large rooms with lots of natural light and glass along with its green facades, wide balconies with a view across Vienna, and peaceful garden for short walks.
The building also includes a large event venue with a library, a cafeteria, a workshop with a workbench for crafts, a wheeled mobile kitchen unit that can be used by residents with severely limited mobility, a hairdresser, a pedicure studio, and a spiritual/quiet room.
Thresholdless balcony doors make it easy to move nursing beds, wheelchairs, and wheeled walkers into the garden or onto the balconies.
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten is also environmentally friendly: a photovoltaic unit produces solar power, and the plants growing on the facades as well as special architectural features make for a naturally uniform temperature.
The immediate vicinity atLebenscampus Wolfganggasse hosts the headquarters of our home nursing care provider ÖJAB-Hauskrankenpflege as well as a diverse array of residential, education, diversity-related, and intergenerational projects—an “urban village” where familial structures can grow and flourish.
For many years, the former ÖJAB-Haus Neumargareten was located right next door at Siebertgasse 21.
ÖJAB-Pflegewohnhaus Neumargareten – Wohlfühlen am Lebenscampus qualified as an official project of IBA Wien, the International Building Exhibition of the City of Vienna.
