I am a current client of this provider
I am my mother's conservator, and we've been using the Ridgefield Visiting Nurses for two and a half years now. I will just call them and they will take care of everything. They provide a lot of volunteers as well as paid service for us. The staff is very incredible and outstanding. My mother has a registered nurse that comes in for two hours every other week and is very professional and quite competent. She has a flat fee, and it works for us.
However, the volunteers are better than the paid staff. Mom has a volunteer assigned to her for the last six months who is her driver and takes her to doctor's appointments and the pharmacy. She also has another volunteer who visits once a week and takes her to the store. They never ask for payments and go way beyond as volunteers.
