NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Lenore Consiglio has been named administrator for Waveny at Home, Waveny LifeCare Network's non-clinical home care division that provides professional homemaker and companion services to the public.
Consiglio will oversee and manage Waveny at Home’s growing private duty staff as well as the program’s daily operations designed to help clients remain safely in their own homes. Bill Piper, executive officer of Waveny LifeCare Network, made the announcement.
Consiglio identifies with the dynamic nature of the Waveny at Home program, which was launched in 2013 in response to the community’s growing need for home-based services.
“Because community-based services aren’t limited by physical walls, they can adapt and vary to reflect the changing needs and preferences of those we serve,” Consiglio said. “I like to color outside the lines. I believe there are a number of opportunities to serve and assist people in ways that aren’t even realized yet.”
Consiglio says she is excited to focus on developing custom services specifically tailored to benefit seniors throughout Fairfield County.
“Companionship services can extend far beyond the home,” said Consiglio. “They can range from escorting people to appointments, shopping and events, to providing therapeutic recreation activities like live music or art therapy.”
Joining Waveny with more than 20 years of healthcare administration experience and a strong nursing background, Consiglio most recently served as a managed care clinical specialist in a home care capacity in Cromwell.
Her not-for-profit healthcare experience includes a progression of key leadership positions within the Masonicare organization of Wallingford, where she directed admissions for two locations totaling 534 skilled nursing beds and 59 acute hospital beds.
“Lenore’s solid eldercare background and proven record of ‘outside of the box’ thinking makes her a perfect fit to lead and further develop upon Waveny at Home’s gamut of offerings,” Piper said. “She brings a person-centered approach to service and is a natural fit for Waveny LifeCare Network’s leadership team.”
Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of care – now including Waveny Home Healthcare and Waveny at Home – to serve the growing needs of older adults from all areas.
Waveny is a not-for-profit organization that offers independent living at The Inn, assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s and memory loss at The Village, and skilled nursing at Waveny Care Center. It also includes the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, geriatric care management, an adult day program that offers flexible weekday hours and transportation, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, and respite programs.
