"Waveny Walkers" Raise Awareness and Funds for Alzheimer's
Posted on September 28, 2016
Waveny LifeCare Network staff, volunteers and family members helped fight Alzheimer’s disease by walking and raising funds for this year’s annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk on Sunday, September 18th. Held annually at more than 600 sites nationwide, the Association’s Walk is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
Waveny’s team has participated in the three-mile walk since its inception 20 years ago. Funds raised through donations and sponsorships support the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter, and stay in the community to fund essential care and support services for people with Alzheimer’s.
Waveny’s team is especially passionate about this mission given the dedicated, therapeutic care Waveny provides to patients, residents and participants with Alzheimer’s disease at Waveny Care Center, The Village – Waveny’s innovative assisted living residence 100% dedicated to memory care, and in Waveny’s Adult Day Program.
Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of healthcare to serve the changing needs of older adults from all areas. Waveny is a non-profit organization that offers independent living at The Inn, assisted living and respite care for people with memory impairment at The Village, and skilled nursing, inpatient and outpatient Rehabilitation Services at Waveny Care Center. It also includes the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, an Adult Day Program that provides free door-to-door transportation throughout most of lower Fairfield County, and an array of community-based services through Waveny Home Healthcare, Waveny at Home and Geriatric Care Management.
