Many feel they aren’t getting the support they need to live happier, more fulfilling lives.   Nav-CARE is a free program designed to address these needs. Specially trained volunteers, with connections to professional health care providers, work with you to access resources and services in your community while providing companionship and emotional support. Like a helpful neighbour or friend, Nav-CARE volunteers visit you in your home on a regular basis with a focus on enhancing your quality of life.
