"Waveny Walkers" Raise Funds for Alzheimer's Disease Research
Posted on September 29, 2014
Waveny LifeCare Network employees, volunteers and family members helped fight Alzheimer’s disease by participating in this year’s annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk on Sunday, September 28.
Waveny’s team has participated in the three-mile walk since its inception 18 years ago, raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter through donations and sponsorships. Funds collected will stay in the community to fund essential care and support services for people with the disease.
The Waveny team joined scores of walkers from throughout Fairfield County at Calf Pasture Beach in support of medical research to improve treatments and find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Waveny’s team is especially passionate about this mission given the dedicated care Waveny provides to patients and residents with Alzheimer’s disease at both the Care Center and The Village at Waveny, Waveny’s assisted living residence for people with memory loss.
Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of healthcare to serve the growing needs of older adults from all areas. Waveny is a not-for-profit organization that offers independent living at The Inn, assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s and memory loss at The Village, and skilled nursing at Waveny Care Center. It also includes Waveny Home Healthcare, Waveny at Home the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, a Geriatric Care Management team that provides 24-hour coverage, an Adult Day Program available on weekdays with flexible hours, inpatient and outpatient Rehabilitation Services, and respite programs at The Village and Care Center.
