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.
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.
Montessori is getting my mom engaged in meaningful activities that take her mind off of her worries. It’s helpful in keeping my mom in a place where she has a purpose, a reason to get up and go!
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 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.
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 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.
Montessori engages people in the home, making them feel like they're back home doing activities that are meaningful to them. It gives them a sense of purpose, worth, and accomplishment.
