Mission Statement

Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of healthcare to serve the growing needs of adults in New Canaan and the surrounding communities. We offer a progression of therapeutic programs, services and living options to enhance quality of life for those we serve. We seek to provide the highest quality of compassionate, person-centered care in a not-for-profit setting.
