Background

In 2000, SeniorNavigator (SN) was created as a subsidiary of the Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF). With private support from founding partners, SeniorNavigator spent over a year in development using an action plan methodology. Gerontologists were recruited from Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Union Theological Seminary to assist staff with facilitating regional steering committees, holding focus groups of urban, rural and suburban seniors and caregivers, and conducting interviews with over 100 health and human services professionals. In all, over 1,000 individuals, both professional and consumer, have collaborated in the development and evolution of SN over the past 12 years. SN operated as a subsidiary of VHCF for five years as it built an independent Board and developed a sustainable business model that now includes private and public funding. In 2005, VHCF launched SN as an independent non-profit. In 2006, the SN Board of Directors voted to formally expand the mission to include adults with disabilities. SN currently operates a family of websites: www.SeniorNavigator.org, www.disAbilityNavigator.org and www.VirginiaNavigator.org.  The organization's database is used for Virginia's Statewide No Wrong Door Aging and Disability Resource Center.

Description
disAbilityNavigator is a website that is in the midst of a statewide expansion.  disAbilityNavigator utilizes SeniorNavigator's database, but only pulls from those resources specific and available for adults with disabilities and their families.
Description
Consumers have said they would prefer not to identify themselves with a label, thus, VirginiaNavigator provides universal access.  The VirginiaNavigator website serves as a portal to SeniorNavigator and disAbilityNavigator, but still does allow searching capabilities without the need to self-identify.  By managing only one database that interfaces with various consumer faces, a consumer can access the valuable information in the way that is most comfortable to them.
