First community in state with far-UVC light capabilities for resident, guest and associate protection
CANOGA PARK, Calif. (January 12, 2021) – Canyon Trails Assisted Living and Memory Care, a senior care community operated by Integral Senior Living (ISL), is the first senior living community in California to install state-of-the-art sanitization solutions, to help its community reach a safer and healthier new normal.
“The well-being of our residents, associates and guests is our top priority. Healthe’s innovative products utilize scientifically proven methods to inactivate pathogens, and provide additional layers of sanitization beyond the significant protective measures we already have in place,” said Collette Gray, President and CEO of ISL. “Our hope with installing this leading-edge protective technology is not only to provide a cleaner and safer environment, but also to give our residents, associates and eventually guests comfort and peace of mind.”
A growing library of evidence, including independent research backed by many peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals, demonstrates a clear role for far-UVC light in promoting human health and wellness. This includes being effective at inactivating viral particles in the air and on surfaces as well as being safe for use in indoor environments. One recent study, led by one of the world’s leading far-UVC researchers, Dr. David Brenner, director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University, demonstrated the technology’s safety and efficacy against airborne viruses, including coronaviruses.
Canyon Trails has installed the following Healthe cleanse product in its community:
The Healthe ENTRY sanitization portal is a free-standing, walk-through arch sanitizer, similar in size and shape to a metal detector. It uses far-UVC 222nm to remove up to 90% of the viral load on items in just 20 seconds. The Healthe ENTRY has been strategically installed at the community’s main entrance.
“We are pleased to continue our strong partnership with industry-leader Integral Senior Living to help them further increase protections for residents, staff and guests in their communities, including the Canyon Trails Assisted Living and Memory Care community,” said Healthe Chief Commercial Officer Troy Temple. “As COVID-19 continues to negatively impact Americans, especially in hard-hit places like California, it is important that all sectors have access to the latest cutting-edge sanitization solutions. At Healthe, we are helping to meet this great health care challenge, with a thoughtful, layered protection approach.”
Canyon Trails has served the Los Angeles community for a number of years and has been included in ISL’s portfolio since 2016. In addition to the installation of these sanitization products, the community features a variety of spacious floor plans and resort-style amenities and accommodations with care that is individualized to each resident.
“The addition of this new technology, coupled with our determination to provide quality care, allows our community to continue providing a place of comfort, safety and well-being for each resident,” said Susan Weisbarth, Canyon Trails’ Executive Director. “We encourage anyone who is considering senior living to contact us for a virtual tour to experience the Canyon Trails difference firsthand.”
