scroll-behavior: smooth; Stiftung Tanja: Residential home in Bitsch

Needs-orientated care and nursing, occupation, therapy and a home for a better quality of life.

The Tanja residential home offers space for 12 severely disabled people 365 days a year.

The Tanja Foundation aims to support, promote and integrate socially disadvantaged people, in particular people with multiple disabilities who require a high level of care, in particular by renting out the Tanja residential home to the MitMänsch Foundation.

Founding idea and initiative

At the turn of the millennium, Sieny and Renato Berchtold took the initiative to build a residential home for people with physical and mental disabilities and set up a foundation for this purpose.

Location, competition and opening

After an intensive search for a location and countless discussions with the authorities, a public competition was launched for the construction project. The building constructed in the Ebnet neighbourhood in Bitsch was officially opened in August 2007.
