The Rotary Club of Ridgefield recently awarded a grant of $2,000 to the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association (RVNA). Funds will be used to start a library of bereavement books and resources at RVNA to benefit hospice patients and grieving family members. The library will serve a wide range of ages and life situations and will be used by the Hospice by RVNA team, as well as support groups and individuals.
Our population is aging at a pace never seen before and individuals are living longer with life-limiting conditions and terminal illnesses. RVNA seeks to address these changing needs by adding hospice care to our family of services. Hospice is a complementary and natural extension of the services provided by RVNA and completes the continuum of care we offer our patients and their families.
