Services for Seniors
Seniors, their families and care providers are encouraged to call the Community Navigation and Access Program's (CNAP) toll-free phone number (1-877-540-6565) when they don’t know where to turn for help at home.
Callers are greeted by a professional Social Worker who takes the time to understand each senior’s needs and connects the senior to the right service provider in the local community.
