Computerized Disinfectant Eliminates Need for Multiple Cleaning Products, Reliance on a Stressed Supply Chain

R-Water, a woman-owned business in San Marcos, Texas, manufactures and distributes a computerized device that gives hospitals, senior living, extended care, health care, and other facilities the power to produce cutting-edge cleaning and disinfecting solutions on-site.

R-Water manufacturers a patented computerized device that attaches directly to a facility’s water supply and uses only pure salt, water, and electricity to create ready-to-use TK60, a hypo­allergenic health care-grade disinfectant and multi­surface cleaner FC+.

Both solutions are free of toxins, color, and added fragrances and eliminate the need for multiple disinfectants, sanitizers, deodorizers, degreasers, and surface-specific cleaners. On-site production removes chemical transport, storage, and mixing.

TK60 is proven effective in killing coronavirus (COVID-19), MRSA, and C. Difficile spores in just one minute, 10 times faster than most products, and complies with FDA code for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required. FC+ is safe for use on hard surfaces, carpets, upholstery, and most materials.

The OnShift Wallet fee waiver program is made possible by PayActiv, a provider of employer-sponsored earned wage and tip access. As a public benefit corporation and Certified B-Corp, PayActiv launched a fee waiver program in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic and has extended the program to customers of OnShift to help post-acute care and senior living employees and their families during this period of uncertainty.

Technology Reduces Isolation, Loneliness Among Seniors

GrandPad offers a simple, safe, and secure way to stay in touch with senior loved ones. Consumer Cellular, a no-contract wireless provider, is the official carrier of GrandPad, a communications device developed specifically for seniors to prevent isolation and loneliness.

“GrandPad allows seniors to stay connected with loved ones in a way cellular phones simply can’t. The functionality of the device makes it easy for seniors to operate, notably those who may be dealing with sight or dexterity issues. The device allows them to stay connected to their friends and family, which helps reduce loneliness and isolation—a growing issue in our society,” said John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular.

While technology has brought families closer together, it has increased isolation for older members of the family who may not have access to social media channels or even text messaging and email. Designed specifically for seniors 75 and older who can’t or don’t use a smartphone or computer, GrandPad provides a safe and secure environment to communicate.

When a GrandPad is purchased, a designated family administrator is able to completely customize the device before it is sent to the user. The easy-to-use device allows seniors to video chat, make voice calls, send and receive photos, dictate emails, listen to their favorite music, and play games. The large, bright-colored buttons are easy to navigate, reducing points of frustration for the user as well as for the family members. The wireless charging cradle eliminates the need to hassle with cords.
