One third of all deaths in seniors over 65 result from infectious diseases (according to the American Academy of Family Physicians). Though seniors are more susceptible to infection overall, those with dementia or those who are in long-term care may be at an even greater risk.
For caregivers, it’s critical to learn about the most common infections in the elderly and to take steps to ward off any infections that might be preventable. This can help promote greater wellness and quality of life.
Microshield’s disinfection service can be used in care homes to keep bacteria levels at a minimum. Our environmentally friendly, non-allegenic disinfection process kills all the bacteria, viruses and moulds that traditional cleaning can’t – reducing the risk of infection for residents and staff.
