Celebrating Hospice Programs: NavCARE

The goal of NavCare is to improve the quality of life of older rural persons with advanced chronic illness via:
  • Navigation services
  • Community partnerships
  • Coordinated access to services and resources
  • Promotion of active engagement of older adults. 

Utilizing trained volunteers, the outcome of NavCare is that navigation services provide individuals with support, education and connection to resources in the community to help improve their quality of life and remain in their communities.
