AHS is part of a new, free program researched by UBC and funded by the Max Bell Foundation. It is designed as a Volunteer navigation partnership for those living with an illness that isolates and overwhelms them.

Making Connections, Making a Difference


Nav-CARE's approach to connection and support for adults living with serious illness is evidence-cased and built on research led by Dr. Barb Pesut, Canada Research Chair in Health, ethics and diversity at UBC and Dr. Wendy Duggleby, Research Chair in Aging and Quality of LIfe, at the University of Alberta. After a successful 2-year pilot, the program is now expanding across Canada and Abbotsford Hospice Society is proud to be a part of it.

How Nav-CARE volunteers can help:


  • Relieve feelings of loneliness, isolation and anxiety.

  • Someone to talk through important decisions and future plans.

  • Connection to community and world at large.

  • Locating local services and resources to help manage your illness.

  • Assist to re-engage in hobbies and other interests.

  • One on one relationships tailored to your specific needs.
