Services to Keep You Healthy

Our goal is to help you promote optimal health and well-being throughout your life.

From birth to living out your later years at home to all your travels in between,  RVNAhealth BeWELL services help keep you healthy.  

We serve hundreds, even thousands each year, both individually and community-wide. We do this through our work across your communities and at our Center for Exceptional Care in Ridgefield, CT. 

COVID-19 Vaccines

RVNAhealth is an official COVID-19 vaccine provider in the State of CT, approved by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH), and working in partnership with local towns.

Nurse-Family Partnership

Our team of maternal and child health nurses utilizes the evidence-based Nurse-Family Partnership nursing model which pairs first-time mothers with their own personal nurse from pregnancy through their child’s second birthday. RVNAhealth Nurse-Family Partnership is a voluntary, free program for eligible mothers* residing in Western Connecticut.

Flu & Pneumonia Vaccines

Every flu season, RVNAhealth offers flu and pneumonia shots daily (except Sundays) at pop-up clinics in the community as well as at our Center for Exceptional Care.  RVNAhealth flu nurses are highly-skilled, experienced and compassionate. Vaccines are available for the whole family, from infants (6 months old) to seniors.

Chronic Care

The RVNAhealth Chronic Care Program supports individuals with chronic conditions or disabilities at home by providing nonskilled nursing assistance to monitor their general health needs.

Nutrition Services  

RVNAhealth offers nutrition services and programs through our registered dietitians. Our nutrition services help you evaluate and refine your diet for optimal health, healing, enjoyment and energy. Our dietitians are skilled at — and enjoy — working with people at all ages and stages of health, including children.

Education Programs

Being informed is the first step to living a healthy life. To keep you current on matters of health and wellness, RVNAhealth holds education programs and events on a wide variety of topics, led by experts in their fields.

Blood Pressure Screeings

High blood pressure plays a role in many serious health conditions, yet it often has no symptoms. To help you keep track of your numbers, RVNAhealth offers free blood pressure screenings each month at several area locations.

Nursing Services & Immunizations

To complement the services we provide to individuals in their homes, RVNAhealth also offers a range of nursing services (screenings and testings; dressing changes and more) and immunizations at our Center for Exceptional Care in Ridgefield, CT for those in need of specific vaccinations and those with medical needs that can be challenging to perform independently.

Private Duty Nursing

Private duty nurses are available to serve patients with non-covered medical services such as medication management and administration, routine injections not covered by insurance, respiratory treatments, ventilator, trach, and feeding tube care, and elective procedure recovery, to name just a few. Our nurses can also accompany patients to medical appointments and provide education and advice.

All private duty nurses are employed by RVNAhealth as a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse and have access to the entire RVNAhealth suite of services to help ensure seamless care and transition between services if needed. Services are provided in-home and at facilities located across southwestern Connecticut.

Travel Health

Travel to exotic locales brings extraordinary benefits — and adventure. But it can also expose you to serious diseases that may threaten your health. Zika virus, typhoid, malaria, yellow fever … to name a few. RVNAhealth travel health specialists provide information, immunizations and prescriptions to keep your journeys healthy and sound.

Public Health & Safety  

In emergency situations such as snowstorms, power outages, and threats to public health and safety, RVNAhealth is the designated resource for health support in the Ridgefield, CT community.  

Well Child Clinics  

Every August, RVNAhealth offers physicals and immunization-only visits for young people from birth to age 18. Well-Child Clinics are open to all, but are especially intended for families who do not have health insurance, or whose insurance does not cover annual physicals and immunizations. 

Health & Wellness Fair

RVNAhealth’s annual Health & Wellness Fair features free health screenings from head to toe; medical experts and professionals available for Q & As; and wellness organizations and community groups offering valuable information and fun activities.

I wouldn’t miss your health fair as long as I’m local. I get a wealth of information and everyone greets me with a smile and is very helpful. Thank you!”
