The NAN program is a service for caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia

The Florida Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA) and the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) of Broward County have joined forces with Navigating Aging Needs, LLC (NAN) to reduce the burden of care for family caregivers of older adults with Alzheimer’s Disease.

The DOEA is providing 12-month NAN subscriptions to family caregivers of individuals who are in need of assistance. NAN subscribers are assigned a NAN Navigator -- a dedicated expert that assesses their needs and the needs of their loved one, and develops a NAN plan that addresses any medical, emotional, social, financial, or legal challenges they may have. The NAN Navigator is an ongoing resource providing information, coaching, and emotional support, all of which leads to improved outcomes for family caregivers and their loved one.
