Last year, the agency served more than 1,500 patients, making well over 48,000 home care visits in 28 western Connecticut towns.

The RVNA Spelling Bee promises to be fun for the whole family while supporting an organization that serves so many in our own community and beyond. Tickets are $20 for adults/$5 for students and can be purchased online at ridgefieldvna.org. Tickets are also available at RVNA’s Center for Exceptional Care, located at 27 Governor Street, and at the door.
