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.
Through our training in Montessori and dementia care, we have learned how reinforcing our residents' identities brings them comfort, joy, and purpose. As we get to know someone, we help them engage in meaningful activities that enable them to use their strengths and abilities.
We are always exploring new ways to help people connect and contribute based on their interests, skills, and abilities. Below are some of the activities that our current residents and tenants enjoy.
Montessori activities are meaningful to residents because they are used to doing them their whole life. It's natural for them. Residents are more at peace and more comfortable living in their homes.
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.
We look at their past, who they are, their values & beliefs and create activities that connect to that. We create activities for people to connect with who they are, what defines them. This way I am able to help residents live to their fullest potential.
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.
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 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.
