The Good Companions, a non-profit multi-service seniors’ centre, provides opportunities for individuals to participate in social, recreational, educational and volunteer activities and benefit from social and health services. Our mission is to promote and support the well-being, independence and zest for living of seniors and adults with physical disabilities in the greater Ottawa area through providing a congenial, stimulating, visible, accessible, safe and supportive centre, physical facilities and programs, and through providing services to seniors in their own homes.
The Centre’s main priorities are social integration, affordability and accessibility. We provide meals and refreshments as well as health services including wellness and social programs/services. Special programs and volunteer assistance are also made available for frail or disabled seniors.
Community Support Services are provided to seniors and adults with physical disabilities living in Centretown and North-East Ottawa, with or without membership to The Good Companions. These services/members programs include information and referral, friendly visiting, home help, telephone assurance, grocery and shopping bus, home maintenance, transportation (escort) to essential services and snow removal.
