Volunteer navigation partnerships: A compassionate communities approach to early palliative care

Community volunteers can increase quality of life for those living with a chronic illness


This 38 month project scales out and evaluates an intervention called N-CARE designed to provide support to adults aging with a serious illness by providing supportive community-focused navigation services in the home by trained volunteers.  Volunteers seek to improve quality of life of older persons through psycholosical support, strategies to promote active engagement, and connections to community-based resources.  The learnings of this scale out to 24 sites will enable the proponent to continue adapting this program, and perform policy advocacy for widespread adoption.
