Assisted Living and Memory-Dementia Care (The Village)
The Village at Waveny provides award-winning Assisted Living with a therapeutic approach to memory support and dementia care. Our memory care residence located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, is specifically designed to enhance the lives of people with memory impairment, and our world-renowned indoor “Main Street” is a unique social gathering place for our residents, overnight respite care guests, volunteers, staff, family and friends.
Assisted Living at The Village
Residents at The Village receive attentive, individualized personal care and 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.
Where 'Main Street' is Memory Lane
We understand how important it is to find a balance of structure and independence when choosing the right residence for a person with memory loss. That’s why Village residents benefit immediately from our secure, familiar setting, and are encouraged to live as freely 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 and community to those we serve.
Thanks to our discreet security system, Village residents enjoy the independence to explore and socialize with friends on Main Street throughout the day.
Strolling along Main Street 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. During the warmer seasons, they can enjoy a peaceful walk down the looping paths of our three beautiful courtyard gardens.
A Unique & Innovative Blend of Activities
Unique to The Village is its integrated blend of activities with participants from our Adult Day Program. We provide a diverse therapeutic recreation program that includes meaningful recreational and stimulating activities, exercise and yoga, educational, holistic, spiritual and cultural programs, entertainment and outings. See our Activities Calendar for the exciting events and programs happening this month at The Village. An important part of our specialized programming, we are pleased to help residents stay in touch with family and friends using Skype technology.
Life at The Village
Just beyond Main Street, The Village's interior residence offers charming studio apartments and deluxe suites with picturesque views. Each apartment is perfectly suited to meet the unique needs of a person with memory impairment and has a large, state-of-the-art handicap-friendly bathroom.

Delicious meals, nutritious snacks, cable television, WiFi internet, telephone, laundry services, continence products, personal care items, and more are covered in a single all-inclusive rate.

Caregiver Relief through Short-Term Respite Stays

In addition to providing vital 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 loved one with personalized care while you take some necessary time for yourself. After all, when you attend to your own health and wellness, the person you care for will benefit, too.
