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.

Nursing Homes 1

Most people spend approximately 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.

38x

In 2017, the EU-27’s standardized death rate from respiratory diseases for people aged 65 and over was a staggering 38 times higher than the standardized death rate of those under the age of 65.1

0.9ppm

Studies show that an increase of 0.9ppm of carbon monoxide in air pollution causes a significant increase in cardiovascular hospital admissions in the elderly.2

1 in 9

More people are dying in care homes than in hospitals due to COVID-19. For every 1,000 people in their mid-seventies or older who are infected with the virus, 116 — one in nine — will die.3,4. Elderly people are at high risk of developing complications or even mortality due to infectious airborne diseases.

Welcome to the family

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.
