To the Waveny LifeCare Community:
On behalf of the Waveny LifeCare Board of Directors, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our grateful appreciation to our volunteers and donors for their service and financial support of the Waveny LifeCare Network’s mission of caring. During the earliest days of the threat of the COVID-19 Coronavirus in the United States, Waveny took steps to ensure that the highest levels of quality and care continued uninterrupted to protect the health and safety of our more than 300 residents and patients, our over 500 employees, and our 400-plus volunteers.
Understandably, those steps included the temporary suspension of our strong and invaluable volunteer program of individuals who have given their time, heart and soul to our community of seniors who live or access care at the Waveny Inn, Village, Adult Day program and in our full-skilled nursing and rehab Care Center. For more than 45 years, local families have entrusted Waveny to care for their loved ones. Along with our dedicated employees, our volunteers have helped cement that trust.
While our Waveny community continues to be well cared for by our wonderful healthcare staff, we can tell you that our volunteers – who delight everyone with their love, friendship, prayers, songs, smiles, health treatments, wellness, pet therapy and flowers – are greatly missed and we look forward to their return once the crisis has subsided.
Individual and community involvement, both large and small, supports the continued health of Waveny’s residents and staff and is gratefully appreciated.
