Reflecting back on one year after the pandemic outbreak started making the news, nursing homes - in an industry that isn’t usually so in the spotlight - was front and center. Our eldery population is among the most vulnerable to COVID and therefore special precautions must be made. Many seniors were facing challenges that were new, such as an unprecedented loneliness by not having physical access to their guests, friends, and loved ones Now that the world is hopefully rebuilding from the start of the pandemic, how do we safely build the future of nursing homes and set up the industry for success? One thing that must be of primary concern is to keep nursing homes as clean as possible. Imagine if you were going to live in a nursing home - you’d certainly want to make sure that everything was clean and sanitized completely and on a regular basis. Cleanliness in nursing homes changes the perception and reality of improving safety of facilities and sets your mind at ease.
