VNA Northwest has been helping those in need in Litchfield County for more than three-quarters of a century. Perhaps you, someone in your family or someone you know has been a beneficiary of the loving care given by our staff. Potentially (we never know when) every family in Northwestern Connecticut may find it necessary to ask for home health care help from VNA Northwest. Illness, an accident or simply aging can create that need.

When the time comes, we want to be here for you, but as a nonprofit organization we must constantly appeal to the community for support to help us carry on our vital mission. By making a major gift to the agency you can help to guarantee that VNA Northwest will be here far into the future, helping those in need remain in the comfort and safety of their own homes in time of need.


"My family would like to say thank you for the wonderful care that my father received from the nurses while on service.  His quality of life was much improved and he always enjoyed their visits as well….please accept this donation that might help provide the same care for other future patients." – Northfield
