Waveny Home Healthcare moves downtown

Waveny LifeCare Network's division Waveny Home Healthcare has moved to 21 Grove St. on the second floor above Weed & Duryea in downtown New Canaan.

Waveny's Grove Street office now houses all of Waveny's community-based staff and services, including the home-care division, which offers a full spectrum of licensed, professional in-home nursing and therapy services; Waveny at Home, which provides nonmedical homemaker and companion services; and Waveny's geriatric care managers, who manage and facilitate care in complex medical circumstances.

"We are pleased to finally have our community-based services located within the community itself," Bill Piper, Waveny CEO, said. "Since our goal is always to help enable our home-care clients to remain safely in their own homes, we are happy to be in the community serving the community."

Waveny Home Healthcare, which previously resided at Waveny's main 3 Farm Road campus, assists clients throughout Fairfield County when services and treatments can be provided within clients' homes, their families' homes or within an assisted living setting.

"We are proud to have become a trusted community partner offering options ranging from skilled care to companion services," Terry Tumpane, administrator of Waveny Home Healthcare, said. "We continue to develop in response to the increasing need for in-home services, so this move makes sense for our growing team and is also convenient for the public, as well."
