|Description:||Navigators assist people in accessing a variety of supports across the lifespan, including, but not limited to, mental health support, legal support, health care and financial support. Support is often required during transitional points of care, such as youth transitioning to adult services or an older adult preparing to enter long-term care. Accessing services and transitioning between types of care can be complicated and frustrating. Navigators, also referred to as care coordinators or case managers, serve as a guide to help people obtain the help they need.
