Preparing for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
How Radiant Care is preparing for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Radiant Care has implemented prevention and early detection measures so that outbreak control measures can be implemented promptly.
To minimize the risk to our residents, tenants, and staff, Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of the Ministry of Health has mandated that all non-essential visits to Radiant Care are disallowed. This includes all areas of our campuses.
The Ministry of Health is identifying an essential visitor as those who have a resident/tenant who is dying or very ill. These visitors must continue to be actively screened prior to entering. Those who fail screening will not be permitted to enter. No other visitors are permitted to enter any building on Radiant Care’s property; instead, they are asked to keep in touch with loved ones by phone or other technologies, as available.
Active screening stations are in place for essential visitors and staff.
Radiant Care is doing all we can to minimize the impact of this situation on our community, and we will continue to post updates as needed.
Here’s the latest update from our CEO:
Throughout these challenging times, there are many bright spots. Check out these posts to see some of the things going on in our homes:
Recent News & Events
COVID-19 Update from our CEO
At Radiant Care, we continue to work tirelessly to ensure that our seniors have access to the highest level of care possible as we all navigate the ongoing pandemic situation to the best of our abilities. We are saddened by the recently released Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) report respecting their observations of the five long-term care homes they were called upon to provide assistance. We find the specifics of these stories very upsetting and we are heartbroken for any of the individuals who have had to deal with these horrible circumstances. We are grateful to report that the situation at Radiant Care Pleasant Manor and Radiant Care Tabor Manor is currently stable and that there have been no outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus among staff, residents and tenants. All long-term care residents and staff were recently tested, with no positive results.
Caring and Connecting Pen Pal Initiative
We are participating in the Caring & Connecting Pen Pal Initiative. This initiative works to mitigate the isolation that the elderly are experiencing during this unprecedented time, all while following physical distancing protocol.
We appreciate you!
Our staff are heroes! They are dedicated, compassionate, careful, and a million other great things. We have posted these "Heroes Work Here" signs at our entrances and throughout our homes to recognize our awesome staff.

Happy Mother's Day
