If you are living with an illness that isolates and overwhelms you at times, you aren’t alone.
Nav-CARE is a new, FREE program designed to address these needs. Specially trained volunteers, with connections to professional health care providers, work with seniors to access resources and services in their community while providing companionship and emotional support. Like a helpful neighbour or friend, Nav-CARE volunteers visit seniors in their home on a regular basis with a focus on enhancing their quality of life.
Nav-CARE has been developed through research and generous funding from national agencies and philanthropic foundations. Nav-CARE supports seniors to live well and independently at home for as long as possible.
According to a recent survey*, one in five seniors say they experience emotional distress and have difficulty coping day to day. Many feel they aren’t getting the support they need to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
*Canadian Institute for Health analysis based on Commonwealth Fund 2016 survey of seniors in 11 countries.
