Nursing & Care Homes

Protect the Ones You Love

Residents and staff in nursing and care homes share in each other’s company, their stories, and celebrations. However, they also share the same indoor air. As the elderly and infirm often have compromised or weakened immune systems, the indoor air quality in nursing homes is crucial.

Covid has changed the face of the residential care industry like never before

We understand the issues and are here to help:

“Our staff have really seen a difference. They used to find the corridors quite smelly in the mornings, but now the smell is completely gone. The residents are much happier, too. With units in their bedrooms, they can feel that the air is cleaner. Visitors have also commented when they come in that it’s not like an ordinary care home with unpleasant odors. Now, it smells clean and fresh when people enter.”

Most people spend approx 90% of their time indoors. The elderly spend even more.

Nursing and care home residents are often deprived of the health benefits that clean air affords. With much of their time spent indoors, our elderly loved ones can be exposed to harmful indoor air pollutants such as toxic fumes, unpleasant odours, and airborne viruses and bacteria.

For every 1,000 people in their mid-seventies or older who are infected with the virus, 116 — approximately one in nine — will die.3,4. Elderly people are at high risk of developing complications or even mortality due to infectious airborne diseases.

We Share Clean Air

"Welcome to the family"

We’re spending more time inside, but instead of being safe from pollutants, we’re more exposed than ever. Indoor air is on average two to five times more polluted than the air outside7 — yet despite greater awareness of airborne diseases, we continue to share the same contaminated air.

Embrace clean air technology and bring fresh air back inside and join the community that is committed to turning the tables on poor indoor air.
