For Lifelong Care
and Wellness

Exceptional Patient Care in the Community Since 1914

RVNAhealth (formerly RVNA or Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association) is a private, non-profit, mission-driven organization founded and focused on care. While our name and services have evolved since our founding as a home health care agency in 1914, our guiding principles have remained steadfast: a mission to serve, exceptional patient care, and a commitment to excellence in quality and service. 

“The individuals we care for come first, and we care for the individual.”

Today, RVNAhealth provides lifelong health care and wellness services and the support and resources to maintain your highest possible level of health, and improve your quality of life and well-being. In collaboration with other healthcare professionals including your own, we provide care to serve all ages, stages and levels of health. This care is offered through our four families of services collectively referred to as ‘The Wells.’

Our experienced team of caregivers provides home health care services in the comfort of your ‘home’ whether it is a private residence, assisted living or skilled nursing facility, or hospital, and also in our ‘home’ at the Center for Exceptional Care in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and across the 28 communities we serve.

Our leadership team and board uphold the philosophy that “the individuals we care for come first, and we care for the individual.”

Who We Serve

I have a Lifeline because I live alone. I don’t want my children or my grand-children to worry about me, even though they live here in town. I do it for them.
