NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Helen Bonk, RN, BSN, has been named Administrator of Waveny Home Healthcare by Bill Piper, Chief Executive Officer of Waveny LifeCare Network.
She joins Waveny with a depth and breadth of home care expertise gained through a comprehensive nursing career.
“As Waveny’s community-based services continue to grow, we’re delighted to have Helen on board in this key leadership role,” said Piper. “Her degree of clinical expertise and direction are vital – now, more than ever – as Waveny continues to evolve from a brick and mortar destination, into a healthcare provider that can also come to you.”
To deliver upon the community’s demand and preference for home-based care, Waveny Home Healthcare provides a full spectrum of licensed and professional in-home services to clients throughout Fairfield County.
Professional treatments range from physical, occupational and speech-language therapies to skilled nursing care, geriatric care management, medical social services and home health aide assistance.
“Because our home-based clinical services and therapies allow for short-term medical care during critical times of recovery, Waveny Home Healthcare is meeting an increasing and important need within the senior community,” said Bonk.
“Our team makes successful recovery at home following a joint-replacement or medical procedure possible because we bring expertise, support and resources into the home to help transition our clients back to independence.”
Most recently, Bonk worked at Gentiva Health Services, serving as branch director in Hamden and administrator in Farmington.
Her prior experience includes positions as assistant director of clinical services for Connecticut Home Healthcare of Trumbull, and director of care management for the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging (SWCAA), where she maintained an additional clinical focus on mental health.
Bonk holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Fairfield University, where she graduated summa cum laude and as valedictorian of her class.
