Community Support Services are available to seniors aged 55+ and adults with a physical disability living in the communities north of the Queensway, between Preston St. and Blair Rd.
Community Support Services provide support for people who have a disability, illness or limitation due to aging, help them remain living independently and safely at home, and make connections to others their community.
Services are arranged through volunteers, paid workers and independent contractors who have been screened by us, including a police record check for the vulnerable sector, and orientated to the program.
The Good Companions tries to accommodate all requests for service; however, service provision depends on the availability of volunteers, workers and independent contractors.
Membership to The Good Companions is not required in order to access our Community Support Services.
Access Community Support Services on line though our Champlain Caredove website https://www.caredove.com/champlaincss

Recently, the Government of Ontario announced their roadmap for reopening the province. This gradual phase-in process is based on the province-wide vaccination rate and improvements in key public health and health system indicators (such as hospitalizations and the number of patients in ICUs). Reopening consists of three steps, with a minimum of three weeks before moving to the next step. The Good Companions is deemed a recreational centre, and as such is eligible to open in Step Three which could be by end of July to early August. The Good Companions plans to reopen its doors on: Monday, August 9th.
In order to attend the Centre for lunch, programs or social visits, everyone must pre-register up to 48 hours prior to attending. Pre-registration is solely by telephone to avoid any duplication or errors at 613-236-0428. In order to maintain social distancing, we will be opening our doors based on cohort groups (Red group: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Blue group: Tuesdays and Thursdays). We ask that you choose one cohort, and maintain your visits to these days of the week for the time being.
Our Summer Program Registration period begins on Monday, June 21st until Friday, June 25th, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. daily. Once again, our amazing instructors have stepped up, adapted, and are planning to offer a number of your favourite programs online. An updated program guide can be found on our website here. In person classes are expected for the Fall session.
In the meantime, we continue to provide foot care on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please contact us to book an appointment: 613-236-0428 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We also continue to provide 3 programs per day through our telephone-based program, Seniors’ Centre Without Walls. Click here to see the current 2021 Program Guide.
