This service is for seniors who cannot leave their home due to illness, transportation barriers, impaired mobility, and other challenges. Also provides support with grocery shopping if needed.
Referral or self-referral.

Eligibility: 55+ in St. John’s (including the Goulds), Mount Pearl, Paradise, CBS, Flatrock, and Pouch Cove.
