The mission of the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association (RVNA) is to provide exceptional home and community health care services, support public health and safety and promote the highest quality of life.
RVNA is a private, nonprofit organization that has been providing quality care for over 101 years.
Founded in 1914, RVNA is governed by a volunteer board of directors. A staff of almost 200 provides a wide range of home health and community-based wellness services to residents of Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Darien, Easton, Fairfield, Georgetown, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Norwalk, Oxford, Redding, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Sherman, Southbury, Stamford, Trumbull, Washington, Weston, Westport, Wilton, and Woodbury.
RVNA is a Medicare-certified home health care agency. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, some private insurances, and private pay patients.
While the medical field continues to become more sophisticated and high-tech, one simple philosophy has not changed at RVNA – the patient comes first. RVNA staff members bring a high level of professional competence to patients and their families. RVNA nurses and therapists have an average of 21 years of experience in their fields. Certified home health aides have an average of 11 years of experience providing home health care.
In addition to home health and community wellness services, RVNA offers several special programs that help patients and their families. These programs are Lifeline Emergency Response System, RVNA Quality Living at Home Program and Telemonitoring. End of life and palliative care are also provided.
