THE NAV-CARE PROGRAM IS IMPLEMENTED THROUGH COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATIONS WITH TRAINED VOLUNTEERS.

Volunteer Coordinator Manual
The organization recruits experienced volunteers and mentors volunteer navigation training. These specially-trained volunteers then work with one or two people with declining health. The volunteer’s goal is to provide long term navigation support and companionship.
With a contribution from Health Canada, we are inviting hospice palliative care organizations to apply for 2-year funding to implement Nav-CARE in their site and to support implementation in additional hospice palliative care sites.
The 2022-23 funding cycle is now closed. The next funding cycle will be announced on October 1, 2022
