Old Castle Looking for the Young at Heart

Fill 100x100 original marienbild 1

Seniors can start to feel depressed when they don’t have work to occupy them. The southwest wing of our castle is reserved for this kind of person. Elders who would like to come, do a bit of light work and feel a valued part of the team.

A generation project at Castle Schochwitz.

A new generation faces retirement. Today’s seniors often feel too young for assisted living or nursing homes. However, people can start to feel depressed when they don’t have work to occupy them. They crave the social life of working, having friends to chat, collaborate and share their life experiences with.

The southwest wing of our castle is reserved for this kind of person. Elders who would like to come and join our small community, doing a bit of light work on the land or in the castle and feeling that they are a valued part of the team.

They are given an annex with bedroom, kitchen and bathroom so that they can keep their freedom but still be connected to the Schochwitz family. Living in a healthy, spiritual place where life and nature are connected, and paying minimal rent.

They impart their life-learned wisdom to the young volunteers that we often have coming and going at the castle and are kept young themselves through this sort of interaction!

We are asking for donations so that we can renovate the old windows in the southwest wing, as well as upgrade the bathroom and kitchen facilities.

The Healing Castle has a long history of providing care and sanctuary for those in need, currently offering such alternative treatments as nature healing, energetic healing, burnout/boreout therapy, sexual therapy and life issues discussions.
