The Stiftung Liebenau with its nearly 8.000 employees is one of the largest employers in the region.


We need committed and well qualified staff to take on the responsible work we do.


That is why we see qualifications and selective job training and further education as being so important. We encourage a positive working environment that is both creative and open to constructive criticism. Where staff can develop, bring in their own ideas for improvement and enjoy their place of work. We work together to find the right work/family balance and also make it possible for staff to work voluntarily in other areas of The Stiftung Liebenau that they find interesting to gain new experiences.

Social Politics

Changes in social values and in social politics are inevitable. We observe and analyse these social and legal developments as well as changes in the market place and new thinking in society. We use this information to adjust and modify our working practise and our strategies for the future.


We take a stand to support new reforms and current issues that are relevant to our business. We advocate our position in politics and in public with discussions with the politicians responsible and produce written documents and presentations on these issues.


It is the responsibility of The Stiftung Liebenau to represent the principles of the Catholic social doctrine as well as the values of independent living, inclusion and community based orientation.


Look for papers to Social Politics in our Mediathek.

To successfully complete the responsibilities that we have on a national and European level we work together with our partners in and outside Germany. Working together strengthens both our position in politics and in our society.


Together with the partners in our network we can actively participate and influence the political thinking that determines our work. We are committed to social reforms that benefit the lives of the individuals we are responsible for.

Spiritual Wellbeing

Spiritual Wellbeing always was and always will be an important part of the Stiftung Liebenau. It has become our main focus. Our basis is a comprehensive understanding of Spiritual Wellbeing as reflected in our core value:


“In our middle – The Individual!"


The Stiftung Liebenau operates on three levels of Spiritual Wellbeing:


  • On the existential level the Stiftung Liebenau provides help, support and guidance in all life’s challenging situations.
  • On the second level the Stiftung Liebenau offers advice and orientation on religious questions and can establish contact with other religions.
  • The third level is specifically Christian and consists of the Spiritual Wellbeing in the Catholic Church: prayer, religious education and Church services.


Our counsellors are both male and female and come from a religious background. Day and night they help and guide elderly individuals who live in different residential care situations. As well as the counsellors, each member of staff plays their part in the Spiritual Wellbeing of all the individuals involved.


If you want to learn more about the understanding of Spiritual Wellbeing and the challenges involved please read the brochure “Seelsorgekonzept der Stiftung Liebenau”.


There is a weekly church service at almost all of our facilities. You can find places of worship in all of our new living and care facilities.
