The Good Companions Handy Helper Program provides caring volunteers who give seniors (55+) and adults with physical disabilities a helping hand in and around their home.
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.
Our Handy Helper volunteers can assist you with a variety of tasks and odd jobs, such as:
You provide supplies, e.g. curtain rod
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.
