Kaiserswerther Association of German Deaconess Mother Houses

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Kaiserswerther Association of German Deaconess Mother Houses is an umbrella organization based in Berlin . Its legal form is a registered association .


In the year 1861 the Kaiserswerth General Conference was founded as an international association of all deaconess mother houses , in which 13 deaconess mother houses from Europe with a total of 700 deaconesses were united. In addition to the Kaiserswerth General Conference , regional conferences with their own meeting rhythms were formed from 1876 onwards. With the passing of a Prussian Nursing Law in 1907, the impetus was given to found a purely German association, which was supposed to coordinate a uniform approach to state legislation. However, it was not founded until nine years later. A major reason was the development of the war nursing in the First World War . The Order of St. John , the Kaiserswerther Association and the large mother houses did not play a major role here. On December 4, 1916, the Kaiserswerther Association of German Deaconess Mother Houses was founded. V. , in short: Kaiserswerther Association . Theodor Hoppe from the Oberlinhaus in Potsdam-Nowawes became the first chairman .

At the moment 74 deaconess mother houses are united in the association. 26 further international deaconess houses belong to the Kaiserswerth General Conference.
