Have you ever gone to a doctor's appointment only to walk out saying,
"I forgot to ask about this..."
"What did the doctor say I needed to do?"
Doctors appointments can be challenging for everyone, especially older adults who may
have lots of appointments or a limited support system to help navigate those
Patient Navigator is an innovative program that works with volunteers to accompany older adults to their medical appointments to help facilitate communication and eliminate those questions after the appointment.
Patient Navigators document the appointment and give a copy to the individual so they have a record of what happened. They can also serve as reminders to say, oh I thought you wanted to ask this.... Patient Navigators can help reduce the stress that is often associated with these appointments.
If you are interested in becoming a Patient Navigator we are always looking for new volunteers. Visit our website to learn more or
