The Good Companions – Community Support Services offers free door-to-door transportation service to local grocery stores for seniors and adults with physical disabilities. This program also provides an opportunity to socialize with others while getting out and choosing your own groceries. Reassurance of the help of our drivers and volunteers is given during regular trips made year round. Some delivery charges may apply.

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.
