ABSTRACT: Many seniors, particularly those being affected by chronic illness, experience loneliness and social isolation. Nav-CARE is a program in which highly trained volunteers work with seniors and family in the home to provide social support and enhance connections to the community with the goal of improving quality of life. This program has now been scaled out to communities across Canada. In this presentation we will describe the development and evaluation of the Nav-CARE program and highlight the experiences of one hospice society in implementing this innovative service.
