Care home group invest in long lasting virus shield

handwashing for covid-19

Milford Care group have invested in a product that can protect their homes from viruses and bacteria for up to 30 days. 

The award-winning group have imported a new product from New Zealand which is sprayed across the homes to encourage outbreak prevention, and in particular COVID-19. 

The unique product sticks to the surface to create a protective layer which instantly kills any viruses or bacteria that should happen to land on it. 

Milford Care have a total of six homes spanning Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. These homes (Spencer Grove in Belper, Derbyshire, Milford House in Milford, Derbyshire, The Meadows in Alfreton, Derbyshire, Ashbourne Lodge in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, Hazelgrove in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, Buddleia House in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire) have all been sprayed with the protective film in order to maximise the safety of its residents and staff. 

The homes have also invested in a hand sanitiser as an extra precautionary measure for residents and staff. The sanitiser provides a 24 hour antibacterial protective layer that works with routine hand hygiene procedures to help minimise germs. 

Pierre Falleth, Director of Milford Care, said: “Our residents and staff’s safety is of the utmost importance and we are evaluating every possible avenue we can to ensure they stay safe. We have found a fantastic product that is proving itself to be effective already. 

He continued to say: “We would like to thank all our staff for their hard work and dedication to our residents. They’ve gone to enormous lengths during this lockdown to ensure all our residents are happy and staying safe and we cannot thank them enough.”
