A picture is worth a thousand words, but just look at these beautiful pictures & smiles that words can make!

We are participating in the Caring & Connecting Pen Pal Initiative (read more here: https://reallyliving.ca/caring) This initiative works to mitigate the isolation that the elderly are experiencing during this unprecedented time, all while following physical distancing protocol.

The pen pals will compose a letter on their laptops. This letter will then be sent to the email of the organizers, and then the cluster of letters are redirected to the specific homes. They are then printed and delivered to the residents & tenants alleviating issues of outside objects being introduced into the homes! Check out this article in Niagara This Week for additional information:

All you have to do as a Pen Pal is:

1. Compose the letter on your computer. You can even draw, or write poetry! Be creative!
2. Email it to: caringandconnectinginitiative@gmail.com

They will compile the emails and send them to us where the letters will be printed by the in-home staff and delivered to our seniors.

Smiles will be created, on both ends!

Preparing for Novel Coronavirus

How Radiant Care is preparing for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Covid-19 update from our ceo

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.

We appreciate you!

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. If anyone wants to send an encouraging message to our heroes, they can do so by emailing encouragement@radiantcare.net

Happy Mother's Day
