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
