Part of the work Comfort Keepers Peterborough does in this community is to connect seniors and their families with the resources they need to live happy, healthy and well-supported lives. Here in Peterborough and the surrounding areas, we are lucky to have a variety of services, supports and community groups to enrich the lives of seniors and the people who care for them.

Grocery Shopping & Delivery Services – Spring, 2020
When Covid-19 made its way into our community we knew that there was a need for additional support among seniors and those with compromised health. Everyone deserves access to the food and medications they need, but with the health and safety precautions in place in most stores, those once-simple daily errands became complicated or impossible for many.
To give back to this amazing community, we introduced our grocery shopping and delivery service and continued to run it through the worst of the pandemic at no charge to make sure that the people in our community stayed safely at home.
It felt so good to be able to give back and do our part to keep Peterborough safe and fed!
