"We’re committed to thoroughly cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting our communities. Since the pandemic started, we’ve supplemented our regular cleaning programs with more frequency and additional equipment, training and cleaning solutions. A clean community is merely the starting point for our commitment to health, comfort and wellbeing.”
Every one of our Eclipse Senior Living communities have had rigorous cleaning programs in place since before the pandemic, but in response to COVID-19 we expanded our housekeeping and maintenance practices to enhance safety and mitigate risk of spreading the virus.
All Eclipse Senior Living communities follow CDC guidelines and use EPA approved cleaning products to disinfect and sanitize surfaces and community areas at regular intervals throughout the day. Ongoing training is also critically important. Senior maintenance and housekeeping associates have gone through national training focused on prevention and control, hand hygiene, use of PPE, understanding environmental controls and processes to ensure occupational health and safety.
What’s more, each of our regional facilities directors has earned a certificate of educational completion by a highly regarded national infection control training organization. Course work covered introduction to infection control, transmission, prevention and control, hand hygiene, personal protective equipment, environmental controls, occupational health and safety, and sepsis.
In some communities, air purifiers and enhanced filtration devices have been installed to improve air quality and help reduce the risk of airborne transmission. Residents are encouraged to utilize personal air filtration and purification devices in their apartments if desired. What’s more air exchange frequency has increased in each community and we change out air filters at least every other week.
