Welcome to Radiant Care
Radiant Care is a private, not-for-profit organization committed to serving seniors with excellence, love and dignity. We are committed to providing top quality accommodation and care to senior citizens. We have two locations in the Niagara Region: Radiant Care Pleasant Manor in Virgil and Radiant Care Tabor Manor in St. Catharines.
Our Board of Directors and staff are committed to providing care in a Christian setting, incorporating the best possible methods, programming, equipment and materials within the limits of available financial resources and government legislation. In addition to meeting social, physical and health needs, Radiant Care has a strong mandate to meet spiritual needs. This is accomplished through our spiritual enrichment programs. Our Montessori Philosophy of Care seeks to validate the identities of the people we serve.
“Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all,
starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.” Galatians 6:10 The Message Bible
We will be a leader in senior’s support services. Continued development in accommodation and program services is seen as an integral component to achieving this. The strength of our staff is based on continued professional development. This, together with our heritage, Christian philosophy, and embodying a Christ-like love in our actions, will provide a unique form of service.
To provide with excellence, love, and dignity a full continuum of housing and services to senior citizens. We serve seniors who wish to live in a community of Christian faith.
Our History - The Radiant Care Story
With a long history of faith and an emphasis on a Christian life centred on following Jesus, the Mennonites have always strived to teach and live out a model of faith that focuses on serving others.
Here in Niagara, almost fifty years ago, forward thinking people in the Mennonite churches saw the opportunity to serve seniors by establishing Tabor Manor in the late 1960’s, and Pleasant Manor in the late 1970’s. Many active volunteers with a commitment to vision, optimism and hard work, created comfortable and supportive residences for seniors. Since those early days, both homes have grown to include a variety of housing options, supportive services, and long term care. In 2017, we established the name Radiant Care to unify our two homes. Together, our homes aspire to radiate good – serving and ministering to the needs of the senior citizens within the Mennonite constituency and greater society.

Radiant Care Values
We demonstrate love in our homes by choosing to act lovingly in each interaction and treating others the way we would want to be treated and by placing other’s needs ahead of our own. Love demands action!
We demonstrate respect in our homes by acknowledging individuals and their opinions for who and what they are, for what they can teach us, and what we can learn from one another. We speak, act, and listen with respect!

We live out our faith on a day-to-day basis as we find in our theme verses. Our Christian faith embodies servanthood and fellowship with other believers. (Matthew 25:40, Galatians 6:10)
We demonstrate community in our homes by strongly encouraging a sense of belonging. We accomplish this by maintaining a home-like atmosphere that provides warmth and support.

The spiritual care program has been an integral part of Radiant Care since its inception. It can be seen in our vision and mission statement grounded in the scripture, in the programming and services we provide, and in the attitudes and intentions of our staff. Our desire is to be like Christ in loving those under our care. This video is meant to offer deeper insight into what we do and why we do it.
