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 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've been here for 20 years and to see the residents not just sitting around, but engaging in meaningful activities is great. I love seeing how much the residents enjoy the activities. Montessori training makes me more patient instead of just doing it all for them. Montessori training helped me understand what the residents are going through.
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.
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.
I have been making toques for about 20 years. I brought this here and we got some of the ladies involved. They weren't sure at first if they could do it, but we taught them. We have made thousands over the years and sent them to those in need.
We take the time to focus on each person as an individual. Someone with a past, present & future. Not just focusing on their personal care needs. We learn who they are, who they were and building them a life in the home that helps them contribute to the community.
