Gloria's Companion

Bringing Residents & Companions Together

Gloria's Companion is an initiative established in 2015 in memory of Gloria Thompson who enjoyed a special relationship with her friend and companion, Jennifer. The goal is to bring residents and companions together for weekly one-on-one visits with a companion for pleasure and enjoyment.


Fundraising for Gloria's Companion Trust helps to pay the companion for their time and ensure little or no cost for residents. The fundraising centres around collecting jewellery throughout the year for a sale each April. "Previously loved" jewellery can be dropped off at:

  • Dundas Manor
  • Double Beauty Esthetics & Hairstyling, Main Street, Winchester
  • Main Street Clothing, Main Street, Winchchester
  • B&H Your Community Grocer, Kemptville
