3. Long-term healthcare financial planning and support

At Waveny, you will find a trusted organization as invested in your senior care as you are.

These days, it’s not uncommon for seniors to outlive their savings, as rising healthcare costs create more uncertainty around securing quality, sustainable care.

More than ever, seniors need a long-term healthcare plan that will provide high quality care even as their funds wane.

By providing over $4.5 million in uncompensated care from our own endowment, Waveny offers a unique solution that gives families more peace of mind and allows them to truly age-in-place.
