New Art at The Inn

The Inn, Waveny's independent living community, has beautiful, vibrant new artwork gracing our lobby and common areas thanks to artist Jennifer Mone Hill. As part of The Inn's visiting artist program, Hill is displaying her abstract work for the month of July. A native of Danbury, Hill utilizes acrylic paint and resin, exploring viscosity, motion, vibration and the interaction of color to provoke emotion, spark curiosity and visual delight. For a tour of The Inn, including a look at Hill's collection, call us at 203-594-5446.
The Kathleen M. Fruin, RN Certified Nursing Aide School at Waveny LifeCare Network is thriving. A new class of 12 students began their 6-week classroom instruction this week and will complete clinical rotations with hands-on training on our campuses. Upon completion and certification, all students have a guaranteed position within the Waveny LifeCare Network.

The Kathleen M. Fruin, RN Certified Nursing Aide School has been developed to address the extraordinary workforce challenges in the nursing profession by preparing qualified candidates for careers in the high demand healthcare industry through the entry level CNA positions. We are grateful to the Corbet Family Foundation for their partnership in this endeavor.
