Waveny Home Healthcare Moves into Community
Posted on April 16, 2014
Waveny LifeCare Network’s homecare division, Waveny Home Healthcare, has moved into the community to 21 Grove Street on the second floor above Weed & Duryea. Waveny’s Grove Street Office now houses all of Waveny’s community-based staff and services including Waveny Home Healthcare, which offers a full spectrum of licensed, professional in-home nursing and therapy services, Waveny at Home, which provides non-medical homemaker and companion services, and Waveny’s Geriatric Care Managers, who manage and facilitate care in complex medical circumstances.
“We are pleased to finally have our community-based services located within the community itself,” said Bill Piper, Waveny CEO. “Since our goal is always to help enable our homecare clients to remain safely in their own homes, we are happy to be in the community serving the community.”
Waveny Home Healthcare, which previously resided at Waveny’s main 3 Farm Road campus, serves clients throughout Fairfield County, where services and treatments can be provided within a client’s home, their family’s home or within an assisted living setting. “We are proud to have become a trusted community partner offering options ranging from skilled care to companion services,” said Terry Tumpane, BSW, MBA, Administrator of Waveny Home Healthcare. “We continue to develop in response to the increasing need for in-home services, so this move makes sense for our growing team and is also convenient for the public as well.”
Waveny Home Healthcare provides services to Medicare beneficiaries, private-pay and long-term care insurance clients living in the greater Fairfield County area. For more information on services and care provided, call (203) 594-5249.
