Companions You Can Trust

Lasting Friendship

By providing caring and individualized service for those either living independently or in various supportive environments, My Great Companion is there to support. We help you get the most out of every day by assisting you to live the life you want to live while maintaining your independence and well-being as much as much as possible.


We know that many elderly members in our community go for days or weeks without speaking to anyone. Loneliness and isolation contributes to a growing problem with seniors and has been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems. It is amazing what a visit once, twice or 3 times a week makes. Our companions visit clients as often as is needed to offer support and add that all-important human element to their day. Once our companions connect with each client providing them with a feeling of support, friendship and security, together we are on our way to a healthier lifestyle.

​Your trust is important to us. Our companions are thoroughly screened based on their skill sets, experience and personality. Each has undergone thorough background checks and possess recent clear national criminal check for the vulnerable sector so you can be sure you are in safe hands. We are fully insured and are covered by Worksafe BC. Our companions also have Foodsafe and Emergency First Aid Community Care certification. Companion Care is deemed an essential service. Our companions wear a mask when social distancing cannot be maintained and follow BC Government COVID guidelines.
