Hello I'm Ruth, I'm the support person, driver and sole trader of 

Companion Drives and Holidays 

My background employment is varied over a number of sectors, throughout the years however I have always gravitated back to customer service, community, aged care or disability services

I hold Certificates in 

  • Disability work
  • Aged Care 
  • First Aid
  •  A Commercial Passenger Vehicle Victoria driver accreditation  
  • Vehicle is registered with CPVV 
  • Police and working with children and vulnerable people checks.

Throughout the years I've worked in this community I've observed a much-needed gap for people living with age or health related disabilities. 

These people often have limited transport or family support around them and we have a public transport system not always user-friendly or is near non-existent if you happen to live on a farm or in a nearby small town or village outside our main township.

Since launching the business, the positive feedback from my customers, other businesses and service providers has been very appreciated and also very humbling. 

I believe I've gained return customers or permanent clients because I strive to support customers as if I was supporting my own disabled or frail family member.

My customers or their family members have told me they appreciate being treated with honesty, respect, understanding, compassion, with a little bit of humour thrown in to make their day happier.

I believe support and guidance can assist a person to maintain their own independence. I enjoy meeting people from diverse backgrounds and supporting them either in their own home or driving them to appointments and throughout our beautiful landscape.


I would be honoured to assist you or your loved one, to accomplish your wishes of maintaining independence. 

Do you have a journey you wish to go on?
