Nav-CARE

What is Nav-CARE?

Nav-Care is a program in our region, sponsored by the South West District Palliative Care Board.  We offer support to individuals who may be going through a period of loneliness, has a chronic condition or is in declining health.  Out clients do not need to be palliative.

Nav-CARE support is offered at no cost to our clients.  The support we offer is of a social nature, focusing on improving quality of life.  We also assist with navigating available resources to allow individuals to live in their homes longer.

We are excited to meet you and match you with one of our specially trained volunteers.
