NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Aces were high at Waveny LifeCare Network’s recent Caregiver Casino at The Village at Waveny.
The nonprofit organization recently had a free casino-themed evening that offered family caregivers an opportunity to relax, unwind and enjoy an evening of professional gaming, while their loved ones enjoyed casino-themed programs and live music through complimentary extended hours at Waveny’s Adult Day Program, according to a press release.
Professional massage and reflexology services were offered on-site between games.
“It was an evening specifically organized to offer caregivers a moment of relief and respite from their demanding full-time care roles,” said Ginny Carroll, Waveny’s director of admissions, in a press release. “Not only did we welcome Waveny’s families, but also the public at large, so we were able to help caregivers whom we had never met before.”
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, according to a press release. For more information, call 855-WAVENY-1 or visit www.waveny.org .
