The Village at Waveny Care Center

New Canaan, CT

This innovative memory care center includes 53 assisted living studio units and space for a 40-person adult daycare program. The residents and daycare participants co-mingle in an active program area called “Main Street.” Reminiscent of old fashioned downtown New Canaan, the sky-lit Main Street is simulated by one and two story brick facades which face each other and house program spaces such as a beauty/barber shop, bakery, ice cream parlor, general store, and dining piazza. The Village has been featured in the New York Times, CNN and CBS.
