Pathway Senior Living
Des Plaines, Illinois
Microfiber Cleaning System
Pathway Senior Living has reduced the
number of cleaning products it uses
by 50 percent, increased the number
of apartments housekeepers can clean
during an eight-hour shift from 16 apartments to 20, and reduced the amount of
water required to clean apartments from
20 gallons per 15 apartments to just one.
At the same time, it has reduced cross-contamination of germs from one apartment to the next.
The secret to these eco-friendly, cost-
saving, infection-reducing outcomes is
a state-of-the-art microfiber cleaning
system that Pathway has adopted in
all of its communities. Microfiber is a
man-made product approved by federal
agencies as a best practice for health
facilities. The housekeepers can use
a different mop head for each apart-
ment, and the materials can be cleaned
and reused 500 times.
Ultimate Chef America
Last year, Brookdale Senior Living took
America’s current craze for world-class
chefs and culinary cook-offs, added
equal parts marketing savvy and positive
wellness messages, and transformed a
good idea for a single event in one local
market into a winning nationwide pub-
lic service campaign that also introduced
Brookdale’s style of living and dining to
literally thousands of new faces.
