The Village at Waveny Care Center features an award-winning building that was specifically designed to enhance the lives of people with Alzheimer's disease and other types of memory loss. With highly innovative sensory-and memory-stimulating benefits, The Village provides one of the most advanced therapeutic environments in the world and is staffed with highly qualified, caring professionals. A licensed nurse and certified nursing assistants are on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Based on assessed needs, residents receive personal care and healthcare monitoring throughout the day, every day.
The Village Advantage
"Main Street" at The Village
We understand how important it is to find the right balance between familiarity, structure and autonomy when selecting an appropriate residence for a person with memory impairment. That's why residents at The Village benefit immediately from its unique, secure and comforting setting.
Complete with an old-fashioned barbershop pole, a bold-faced clock tower and clapboard and brick storefronts, "Main Street" at The Village replicates a quaint New England town. Thanks to a discreet security system, residents delight in their independence and ability to socialize with their friends at one of the many café tables and benches on Main Street.
Strolling along the cobblestone-patterned carpet beneath the 175-foot skylight, residents may pick up notions from the general store, visit the barber/beauty shop or meet a friend at the ice cream parlor. They may also enjoy a tranquil walk through one of our three beautiful courtyard gardens.
Unique & Innovative Blend of Activities
Unique to The Village is its innovative blend of activities - based on assessed abilities and expressed interests - with the participants from Waveny's Adult Day Program. Our ability to provide a broad and in-depth therapeutic recreation program gives our residents the opportunity to experience success, which ultimately serves to improve everyone's quality of life, functional abilities and social relationships.
Each day, we offer a variety of specialized recreational and intellectually-stimulating activities as well as an exercise program. Educational, spiritual and cultural programs are always inspired while the scheduled entertainment is exciting and the field trips are fun.
Living at The Village
Just beyond Main Street, The Village offers 53 charming apartments with picturesque views. Each studio is perfectly suited to accommodate a resident with memory impairment and has a large, private bathroom. Residents' personal furnishings and memorabilia complement the built-in wardrobe and bureau provided.
In addition to their apartments, residents also enjoy cozy living rooms with virtual fireplaces, where they can watch television, play board games, work on a puzzle or gather with family and friends.
There's also plenty of time for conversation during the three-chef prepared meals served daily in lovely dining areas. While catered meals, nutritious snacks and personal laundry services are covered in the all-inclusive fee, residents have complete access to well-appointed country kitchens and laundry areas.
