RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – The Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association recently took occupancy of its new headquarters building, the Center for Exceptional Care, at 27 Governor St. and will celebrate with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
With the Center for Exceptional Care, the association is now able to expand its services in the areas of disease prevention, nutrition education and counseling, physical therapy and caregiver support. It also has added much-needed space for its growing staff, driven by increases in the need for health care at home services and non-medical services, which it delivers through HomeCare by RVNA.
