"Waveny Walkers" Raise $4,000 for Alzheimer's Disease Research
Posted on October 6, 2015
Waveny LifeCare Network staff, volunteers and family members helped fight Alzheimer’s disease by raising $4,000 in sponsorships for this year’s annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk on Sunday, October 4th. 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 19 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 assisted living residence for people with memory loss, and in Waveny’s Adult Day Program.
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.
