Waveny LifeCare Network COVID-19 Daily Update for Residents, Patients, and Families
Our hearts and thoughts are with those across our community impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, especially those whose loved ones are fighting the illness. Foremost, we continue to diligently apply the most qualified clinical prevention and care measures to protect our patients’ and residents’ safety.
Though our community is experiencing a time of greater isolation, we want to warmly thank you for your demonstrations of support and encouragement, all of which promote our greater interconnectedness. These outpourings include thoughtful, creative videos, photos, cards & notes, donations, volunteer activities and acknowledgements. Your efforts and engagement have brightened the spirit of our patients, residents and staff and enriched our community.
The Village Those residents who had previously tested positive and remain in our Memory Care unit, continue to rest comfortably without symptoms.
Care Center We previously reported that a Care Center resident who was hospitalized and most sadly passed away, did so due to what we assumed would be a positive COVID -19 diagnosis. Confirmed test results actually came back negative, attributing the cause of death to co-morbidities other than the virus. Nonetheless our deepest condolences and prayers are with their family during this unimaginably difficult time.
The Inn The Inn continues to have no positive cases of COVID-19.
Waveny Home Care There are no changes to report related to Home Care division clients.

We will continue to provide consistent written communications during this pandemic, and honor your ongoing engagement and understanding. #WavenyStrong
