I'm assuming you mean the arm itself. If so, remove the cap covering the bolt at the base of the arm and tighten,

My driver's side wiper blade has stopped working.

The nut that holds it to the wiper pivot is either loose or the pivot is stripped, try tightening the nut first.

Driver side wiper blade on 1994 chrysler town and country stopped working. Passenger side is ok. What could be wrong?

The wiper arms are 'pressed' onto the wiper motor spindles, often at times when only one of them stops operating, it is because the splines on the wiper that is no longer operating has become stripped out. and may need to either be replaced or tightened. I would recommend tightening it first, then replacing it if that does not correct it.
You can access the hold down bolt (if it is not exposed) by taking a small screw driver and prying up the bolt cap. The bolt is usually a 13mm, and is more easily tightened by a ratchet and socket of the same size.

Blades not moving

It's probably a loose nut where the blade attaches to the body!
You'll have to pry open the hinged cover with your hand or a screwdriver to expose the nut then just tighten it up.
I've had this problem.
Good Luck!
