The Village at Waveny provides a therapeutic approach to assisted living and memory care. Our award-winning assisted living residence is specifically designed to enhance the lives of people with dementia and memory impairment, and our world-renowned indoor “Main Street” is a unique social gathering place for our residents, Adult Day Program participants, volunteers, staff, family and friends.
Residents at The Village receive attentive, individualized personal care as well as healthcare monitoring throughout the day, every day. With stimulating sensory benefits and endless opportunities for meaningful interaction, The Village is internationally recognized for providing one of the most therapeutic environments in the world, and is staffed with a highly-qualified, dedicated team of professionals. A licensed nurse and certified nursing assistants are on-site around the clock, seven days a week.
A 'Day in the Life' on Main Street
Where 'Main Street' is Memory Lane
We understand how important it is to find a balance of structure and autonomy when choosing the right residence for a person with memory loss. That’s why Village residents benefit immediately from our therapeutic, secure and familiar setting, and are encouraged to live as independently as circumstances permit.
Complete with clapboard and brick storefronts, a bold-faced clock tower and an old-fashioned barbershop pole, our award-winning indoor “Main Street” replicates a quaint New England downtown and provides a very important sense of destination to those we serve.
Strolling along the cobblestone carpet beneath our 175-foot skylight, residents can pick up notions from the general store, visit the barber shop or meet a friend at our ice cream parlor, Scoops. Or, during the warmer seasons, they can enjoy a tranquil walk down the looping paths of our three beautiful courtyard gardens.
A Unique & Innovative Blend of Activities
Unique to The Village is its innovative, integrated blend of activities with participants from our Adult Day Program. We provide a broad and diverse therapeutic recreation program that includes meaningful recreational and intellectually-stimulating activities, exercise and yoga, educational, holistic, spiritual and cultural programs, entertainment and outings.
An important part of our specialized programming, we are pleased to help residents stay in touch with family and friends using Skype technology.

Caregiver Relief through Short-Term Respite Stays
If you're the primary caregiver for a person with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss or some other form of dementia, please know that we welcome short-term respite guests for stays as brief as a week at The Village.
In addition to providing caregiver relief, respite stays can also promote a smooth transition to long-term residency for families looking to sample our assisted living experience.
Take comfort in knowing that our dedicated team will provide your family member or friend with excellent care while you take some necessary time for yourself. After all, when your personal needs are met, the person you care for will benefit, too.
