Far-UVC light increases protections for residents, employees and guests at Palm Beach County’s newest assisted living and memory care facility
VILLAGE OF ROYAL PALM, Fla. (August 6, 2020) – The Capstone at Royal Palm, a new assisted living and memory care community operated by Integral Senior Living and developed by Hunt Midwest, announced today that it is the first senior living community in the United States to install state-of-the-art sanitization solutions, to help its community reach a safer and healthier new normal. Developed by Melbourne, Fla. based Healthe, Inc., these products include a walkthrough Cleanse® Portal that utilizes Far-UVC light to sanitize clothing and personal belongings and two Air-Sanitizing Troffers in key staff areas to continuously cleanse and circulate the air.
“The well-being of our residents, associates and guests is our top priority. These innovative products utilize Far-UVC light, which scientific studies have proven to inactivate coronaviruses, and provide additional layers of sanitization beyond the significant protective measures we have already taken to safeguard our community.” said Jeffery Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are excited to install this leading-edge protective technology to further safeguard our community.”
A growing library of evidence, including independent research published in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals, demonstrates that Far-UVC light is effective at inactivating pathogens in the air and on surfaces and is safe for indoor environments. One recent study concluded that “far-UVC light (207–222 nm) efficiently kills pathogens potentially without harm to exposed human tissues.”
The Capstone at Royal Palm has installed the following Healthe Cleanse products in its community:
The Cleanse Portal is a free-standing, walkthrough arch sanitizer, similar in size and shape to a metal detector. It removes up to 90 percent of the viral load on items in just 20 seconds and can function in always-on or motion-activated modes. The Cleanse Portal has been strategically installed at the community’s main entrance.
The Cleanse Air-Sanitizing Troffer utilizes a multi-stage process to trap pollutants and inactivate viruses and bacteria, in addition to providing room illumination. The low-profile troffer draws room air through a HEPA filter, then exposes the air to UVA and UVC light that targets remaining airborne pathogens, achieving a 99.9% kill rate in the expelled air. The UV components are contained within the Troffer, avoiding human exposure. The Troffer can be retrofitted into existing, standard 2’ x 4’ troffer housings and is ideal for use in common areas. The Troffers have been installed at the community’s delivery and receiving entrances.
“We are pleased to be working with industry-leader Integral Senior Living to bring our sanitization solutions to their newly opened community, The Capstone at Royal Palm,” said Healthe Executive Chairman Abe Morris. “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on older Americans. We are pleased to be able to help Integral deploy an aggressive, multi-layered approach to safeguarding their community utilizing our best-in-class technology.”
The Capstone at Royal Palm is set to open this month, with its rental office already open at the community and accepting deposits. In addition to the installation of these sanitization products, the community features a variety of spacious floor plans and resort-style amenities and accommodations.
“Now, more than ever, is the time to make the move to a senior living community,” said Melanie Acevedo, the Capstone at Royal Palm’s Executive Director. “We encourage anyone who is considering senior living to contact us for a virtual tour and learn more about how we plan to keep our residents active, healthy and connected once our doors are open.”
