Adult Day Program
Waveny’s Adult Day Program provides daytime caregiver relief, meaningful camaraderie for seniors, and free door-to-door transportation throughout most of lower Fairfield County – including New Canaan, Darien, Wilton, Norwalk and Stamford, as well as select Westchester County areas. Available five days a week, we welcome participants from all communities.
Our Program is designed to enhance the quality of life for older adults in the community who may require personal care and assistance, medical monitoring, medication administration, or more social interaction throughout the day.
For additional caregiver relief, we offer an array of helpful on-site services to all participants, including shower services and convenient access to overnight respite care or outpatient rehabilitation – all in a secure, uplifting setting. We’re confident you’ll gain peace of mind when you see your loved one enjoying new friendships, participating in rewarding activities, and returning home with stories to share about their day.

In Good Company
Unlike any other day program, our participants enjoy a special connection with residents from our assisted living community, The Village. Each day, there are meaningful choices for all to share in recreational, physical and cultural programs on “Main Street,” our secure, award-winning indoor environment that provides therapeutic benefits and replicates a quaint New England town.
Participants are welcome to browse through our General Store, visit Scoops – our ice cream parlor, relax near our exotic fish tank, explore our gardens, or chat with friends on one of our many park benches. Participants always enjoy a variety of recreational and cultural programs including yoga, Tai Chi, Reiki, music, exercise, outings, entertainment and intergenerational activities.
A 'Day in the Life' on Main Street
A Unique and Diverse Program
Our daily variety of program choices accommodates a wide range of physical and cognitive abilities. Exercise classes, memory enhancement programs and other activities are grouped according to preference, performance and interest, so that each participant can succeed while having fun and maximizing the benefits to their health and wellness.
Adult Day participants enjoy access to Waveny's comprehensive network of eldercare resources and professional experts. We can arrange for bathing, therapy, geriatric evaluation, nutritional counseling, hairdressing, short-term overnight respite stays, and other services – all while they are here with us for the day.
Our team of clinicians and professionals can assist in monitoring most health issues, and facilitate access to services and programs within our continuum of care, if desired. Given Waveny’s 40+ years of experience in senior care, we have a wealth of knowledge about the numerous community resources available to older adults and would be delighted to help you navigate them.
