Waveny Thanks New Canaan Sewing Group and Rotary Club of New Canaan
Posted on June 20, 2014
On behalf of all whom Waveny LifeCare Network serves, I would like to thank the New Canaan Sewing Group and The Rotary Club of New Canaan for awarding us grants this year in support of our Snoezelen Therapy Program.
Waveny has successfully reduced rates of antipsychotic medication in appropriate circumstances in favor of therapeutic person-centered, individualized interventions – such as Snoezelen therapy. This grant will be used to expand our Snoezelen recreational/therapeutic option that focuses directly on the sensory functions of individuals with dementia and memory loss. The program provides everyone (staff, family members, care givers, volunteers) a way to interact with people when verbal communication is not possible.
Please extend ‘heartfelt thanks’ to everyone in your organizations for making these gifts possible this year. We are grateful for your belief in Waveny’s mission, and we promise to continue to provide the highest level of care to the people we serve.
