For over 108 years JGS Lifecare has been committed to caring for our residents and providing the highest quality of care in a safe environment. Today these values are more critical than ever. We are committed to preventing the spread of Covid-19 infection and providing our residents, staff and visitors with a safe and clean environment. We strictly adhere to the standards set by the state and federal government as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the MA Department of Public Health (DPH).

Guided by our public health experts The Sosin Center for Rehabilitation has enhanced our safety and cleaning standards, and revised all protocols throughout all common areas, staff areas and in resident apartments. We have invested in new electrostatic disinfectant spray technologies that allow us to clean more often with greater efficiency and obtain an improved disinfectant coverage. This same technology is being used by professional sports teams, including the Boston Red Sox, airlines, subways and governmental agencies.

We will continue to implement new and improved protocols and procedures to ensure a continued focus on the health and safety of all residents, staff and visitors.

COVID-19 Commitment to Clean FAQ

What new cleaning procedures have been implemented?
  • All common areas including entry ways, elevators and public bathrooms are sanitized with new electrostatic sprayer technology several times throughout the day. High touch surface areas, such as counters, door knobs, chairs and elevator buttons are regularly sanitized.
  • Resident apartments receive a deep cleaning and sanitization once a week utilizing the new electrostatic sprayer technology.
  • Staff areas, including entries, lounges, and locker areas are thoroughly cleaned daily, and receive a deep cleaning and sanitization once a week utilizing the new electrostatic sprayer technology.
What is electrostatic spray technology?
Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged anti-viral mist onto surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they're aimed at. Electrostatic technology permits the application of a thin even chemical coating on all surfaces and the disinfectant even wraps around curves and gets into cracks and crevices as charged particles look for space to attach, offering a better and more secure coverage.

Are products used to sanitize non-toxic and safe?
The products used in common areas and resident apartments is a liquid Lysol® called Hospital 256. It is safe but should not be sprayed on or too near a resident, so residents are not in their apartment during sanitization. We also use a Clorox® product in common areas and residents and staff are not in the areas during application.
How will residents know if their apartment has received a deep clean and sanitization?
A sign stating “This apartment has been deep cleaned and sanitized” is placed in the apartment when cleaning and sanitization process is complete.
