Michigan Independent Living Communities Pine Ridges of Garfield, Plumbrook, Shelby Treated with MicroShield 360 Antimicrobial Coating

DETROITSept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Pine Ridge of GarfieldPine Ridge of Plumbrook, and Pine Ridge Villas of Shelby, part of the True Connection Communities (“TCC”) family, announced today that the communities have been treated with MicroShield 360’s two-step antimicrobial coating system that kills a broad spectrum of pathogens and viruses, including SARS CoV-2 (the specific coronavirus that causes COVID-19 disease), and protects from cross-contamination, odors, and mold between cleanings. TCC is the first senior housing operator to contract with MicroShield 360 to add this extra layer of protection against contamination by viruses in its communities.

MicroShield 360 is a unique coating system that incorporates an initial application of MicroShield 360 Renew, a hospital grade disinfectant, followed by the application of a long-lasting coating that is bacteriostatic, fungistatic, and algistatic. The MicroShield 360 coating system is EPA registered and FDA approved for direct food contact surfaces; it is odorless, colorless, and non-leaching and works every second of every day.

“Utilizing the MicroShield 360 antimicrobial treatment as an extra layer of protection in our communities will help ensure that our current and prospective residents feel safe and secure,” says Jim Pusateri, Chief Executive Officer of TCC. “We have continued to prioritize the health and safety of our residents and team members throughout the pandemic and have taken preventive measures beyond those required by government and health authorities to help protect everyone in our communities.”

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — In a time of uncertainty, staffers and residents at a local senior living community are offering hope.

Pine Ridge of Garfield, located just south of Moravian Drive, wants the community to know that small acts of kindness go a long way. Recently, that has involved rainbows and a colorful message for others not to give up.

Joy director Samantha Bruce said staffers and residing seniors got involved as part of “Rainbows over Michigan.” A Facebook group was created March 21 to spread the message of art by way of rainbows, created from different mediums such as tempura paint, chalk markers, washable paint, acrylic paint and soap and water, and homemade chalk and paint.

As of April 18, the group had nearly 195,000 members and over 10,000 posts were created for members to show off their specific works.

“We know that after the toughest storms comes the brightest rainbows,” Bruce said.

The community’s staff has painted the building’s front windows with rainbow hearts, while residents have decorated their doors with rainbows.

Also, Pine Ridge of Garfield is providing any senior with a homemade, washable mask if he or she needs one. They just have to call (586) 723-0000 and a mask will be mailed.

“These beautiful reminders of hope and beauty have really encouraged our staff and residents to keep pushing on during such a challenging time,” Bruce said.
