Feeling out of the loop? Friendships and connection with others is vitally important to maintaining our health as we age. The Good Companions – Community Support Services can help arrange for a volunteer to visit you on a regular or occasional basis in person visits every other week for up to 2 hours, and a phone call on the alternate week. Visits may include activities such as chatting about current events over a cup of coffee, a short walk in the park together, watching a movie, playing a board game, or exploring common interests together.

Services are available to seniors 55+ and adults with physical disabilities, who live north of the Queensway between Preston Street and Blair Road. If you live outside of this area, please check online at https://www.caredove.com/champlaincss to find which agency can help you. This service is available without membership to The Good Companions.

New clients undergo a telephone intake with our agency staff prior to receiving services in the home and in some circumstances; a home visit by our agency staff may be required.

To register for the Friendly Visiting Program or get more information, follow the link to our Caredove page: https://www.caredove.com/champlaincss  or call 613-236-0428 ext. 2235.
