Nav-CARE Is A Free Program

People living with declining health often have unmet needs and social isolation resulting in poor quality of life. Many must make life changing decisions to accommodate new life realities. Getting around the community can become intensely challenging, and many do not know the services that are available to assist them. All of these things influence how people manage their health. Nav-CARE volunteer navigators are trained to help with these needs.

“By having a navigator, you have someone who is committed to you, cares about you, has the time to listen to you, and is able to understand what you’re going through.” 



“Having her alongside is good. She asked if she could come to the radiologist. And she was there and, you know, she’s kind of like a third ear, right? Like a third ear.”
