Community Navigation and Access Program to Toronto Seniors Help Line (formally known as CNAP)
The Community Navigation and Access Program to Toronto Seniors Help Line (previously known as Community Navigation and Access Program or CNAP) is a single point of access to services for seniors in Toronto (seniors are considered 55+ but the program will also serve other adults with disabilities of all ages). A registered social worker will take the call and determine the agency(ies) that can best offer the services required for individuals needing support. If consent to be contacted by the suggested agency is provided, the agency will call within 24 hours to discuss details about providing the services. Please note that some services may have waiting lists and may charge a fee. OHIP coverage is not required to access this service.

Available Now: New Web-Based Resource for Persons with Stroke and Caregivers
With the successful dissemination of 1000 copies of My Guide for Stroke Recovery since December 2015, the Toronto Stroke Networks responded to requests from persons with stroke and healthcare providers to adapt this resource to a web-based format. We are pleased to launch this mobile-friendly website http://www.strokerecovery.guide. It allows persons with stroke and family/caregivers to easily navigate information about common post-stroke topics and find practical strategies, video demonstrations and actionable solutions to common questions or concerns after stroke. The layout and content of the website were designed to empower a self-management approach and facilitate community re-engagement. The web design was grounded on global accessibility standards, incorporating elements of health literacy, adult learning principles, and contrast visibility. Twenty-three persons with stroke reviewed the website to validate that it is comprehensive, user-friendly and useful.
