Care Navigation and Client Advocacy
Staff Care Navigators are the main point of contact for clients. Services include intakes and referrals, ongoing needs assessments, care coordination, referrals to vital support services, practical assistance, emotional support, support group facilitation, and matching and support of client/volunteer matches.
Peer Support Volunteers
Shanti Peer Support Volunteers, who are trained in the Shanti Model of Peer Support™, provide emotional support and practical assistance through regular interactions with clients on a weekly basis. Forms of support are based on each client’s individual needs and include companionship through social visits, accompaniment to appointments or social events, and practical assistance which may include light housekeeping, errands, and laundry.
In partnership with Curry Senior Center, LAASN offers support programs that include individual emotional and behavioral support, peer support groups, social activities and outings, and education.
