The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed just how prevalent poor indoor air quality is in buildings across the globe -- including senior living and care communities.
Air quality affects all of us – but not to the same extent. Research shows that older adults are particularly susceptible to the health risks associated with poor air quality, due to weakened immunity and the aging body’s decreasing ability to compensate for the effects of environmental hazards.
Older adults are also at an increased risk for exposure to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19) due to age-related changes in immune function, and senior care communities have been particularly hard hit by the virus, for which transmission primarily is airborne.
Informed by leading research on health and the built environment, this white paper explains the science behind clean air and the ways in which air quality impacts the health of older adults, and proposes strategies for achieving better air quality in order to transform our indoor spaces into healthier places to be.
