Waveny at Home Expands Services into Westchester County
Posted on March 11, 2016
Bill Piper, Chief Executive Officer of Waveny LifeCare Network, has announced that Waveny at Home – the non-profit organization’s non-clinical home care division – has expanded its service area to include Westchester County.
“State lines pose no limit to Waveny at Home’s ability to bring world-class services into the homes of the seniors who need them,” said Piper. “When you look at our geography with respect to towns like South Salem, Vista, Lewisboro and Pound Ridge, you realize that New Canaan is actually bordered by nearly as many Westchester communities as Connecticut towns. We are excited to bring Waveny’s trusted quality of care to our New York neighbors.
With a fully-vetted, capable and compassionate staff of certified nursing aides, home health aides, companions, live-in caregivers and homemakers, Waveny at Home provides a range of professional caregiving services to serve seniors within the community – either in their own homes or in long-term care settings where they would benefit from additional support.
“We help seniors to do what they want, when they want,” said Administrator, Lenore Consiglio. “Whether it’s hands-on assistance from a licensed and certified caregiver, or making a match with the right companion to help run errands, assist with housekeeping or share in recreational activities like out-trips, live music or art therapy, we provide personalized assistance when seniors need a helping hand.”
Because community-based services aren’t limited by physical walls, Consiglio says Waveny at Home’s services can easily adapt to reflect clients’ changing needs and preferences on a case by case basis. “I like to color outside the lines. I believe there are a number of opportunities to serve and assist people in ways that aren’t even realized yet. And, we’re happy to bring our first-class services and outside-the-box approach to eldercare into Westchester County.”
Celebrating 40 years of serving the community, Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of healthcare to serve the growing needs of older adults from all areas. Waveny is a non-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.
