Mission Statement

Committed to our community for over 50 years as a trusted nonprofit, Waveny LifeCare Network (Waveny) has sought to provide the highest quality of care since 1975. Our full spectrum of care anticipates your every need. From at-home rehabilitation to long-term therapy and nursing care, hospice and everything in between, Waveny provides award-winning personalized solutions for patients of all ages. Our community outreach includes school nursing, community health screenings, health education and wellness programs. Over the past 110 years Visiting Nurse and Hospice of Fairfield County has helped thousands of individuals, and their loved ones cope with terminal illness with comfort, peace and dignity. Joining forces with Waveny in 2021 VNHFC enabled the Waveny volunteer program to expand to offer opportunities at the New Canaan Thrift Shop and as part of the hospice and bereavement support volunteer team.

Description
