Serving Seniors with Excellence, Love and Dignity.
Radiant Care is a faith-based, charitable not-for-profit organization offering a full continuum of seniors housing and care at two sites in the Niagara Region.
We invite all of our staff, families, and visitors to participate in Montessori. We would love to see you use one of our Montessori kits or activity areas with your loved one on your next visit. You may find that this is some of the most meaningful time you spend here!
Browse our website to learn more about Montessori and how to have a meaningful visit with someone who has dementia, donate money or requested items to our Montessori programming, visit or volunteer, or ask us about other ways you can get involved.

The harder you work for something, the greater you'll feel when you achieve it.
I really find value in seeing the older people interact with Randy. We bring smiles and laughter to the residents! It brings brightness to their lives. When the residents interact with Randy it gives them a sense of love and acceptance.
Montessori continues to change our homes. We can see how happy the residents are! It makes them happy because we show them our love. When we learn what they like we can implement programs to help them connect to their past.
I like to bake because of the fellowship. It allows me to reach out and help others. That's where my heart is: helping others.
I certainly enjoy being looked after, but I also feel very independent. I feel fit, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I like to make friends and I have friends here. Every morning I ask the Lord to guide me and it's incredible to see what happens. I'm very thankful for what I do have.
I donate to Radiant Care because the money is used wisely. We have fantastic staff here. My donations go to make improvements for those who live at Radiant Care. We can trust our gifts to Radiant Care will be used for a good purpose.
We utilize what residents' interests are and create programs that are authentic and genuine to the residents. We really like to focus on the residents and what they enjoy and care about. It's an authentic and holistic approach to care. We like to get to know our residents and collaborate with different staff.
I felt happy again inside. I'm starting to get to know people and know names. It was hard at first when I moved in here, I was nervous. The staff helped me connect.
