About the Foundation
Opening Doors for Seniors
The Radiant Care Foundation supports programs, events, and experiences for seniors who live at our two sites – Radiant Care Pleasant Manor and Radiant Care Tabor Manor – that would otherwise be beyond the ability and capability of all government and non-government sources of revenue to afford. In this way, the Foundation adds immense value to the experiences of those living at a Radiant Care home.
To this end, the activities of the Foundation rally around “Opening Doors for Seniors” initiatives, which at their core act to eliminate or minimize the social, physical, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive barriers often associated with aging and living in Long-Term Care and seniors’ residences. Almost 600 seniors live at our homes and, thanks to your support, they enjoy a full and varied Spiritual Enrichment program, equipment upgrades, and a variety of special programs and experiences that all work together to reduce barriers.
In 2020, Opening Doors for Seniors seeks to add value to seniors’ lives through the integration of on-site and off-site events centred on the themes of music, faith, social activities, and food, as defined by our seniors and approved by the Foundation Board.

Support the Radiant Care Foundation
We make it easy for you to support our homes through a recurring monthly donation. You decide which home your donation will support.
Every donation is valued and appreciated, and serves the overall purpose of supporting the programs and services of our Radiant Care homes. You are invited to designate your gift to either one of our homes.
Honour the memory of a loved one through a donation. The funeral home will assist you by receiving your donation, or you can choose to contact Radiant Care directly.
Stay tuned for special projects to support. In 2017, for example, our Tenants Associations chose specific projects at each home. At Radiant Care Pleasant Manor, a very successful fund drive resulted in new park benches throughout the grounds, as well as revitalized sidewalks. At Radiant Care Tabor Manor, tenants supported the development of a Fitness and Wellness Centre, which is enjoyed by many on a daily basis!
