CNAP Network Services

The project information is intended to aid senior clients, caregivers and health professionals in understanding what the community service program offers. The “Program/Service Definition” describes a core level of service provided by agencies that offer them.  “Who May Need It” is a guide to determine your needs. Each “Agency” may have different hours of service (for example, days, evenings, and/or weekends), and fees may apply for using the service. ”Seniors”, as used here, refers to individuals 60 years or older; however many agencies provide these services to older adults (55+) and adults with disabilities. “Caregiver”, in this context, refers to a family member, partner, friend or other person providing care and support to a senior.  

These definitions have been adopted and modified by the Central CCAC Doorways to Care project. The Toronto Central LHIN Community Navigation and Access Project (CNAP) has endorsed and adopted these definitions. (Please note that there may be waiting lists for some services.)
