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 are proud to be a Montessori home. Montessori uses activities as tools that help create the bridge to reconnect to people who may seem unreachable, and positively contributes to the quality of life for persons living with dementia.
At its core, our Montessori Philosophy of Care seeks to validate the identities of the people we serve. Montessori involves staging environments to enhance independence, and engaging residents in activities that are meaningful and purposeful to them and that reconnect them with past roles to enhance their quality of life. At Radiant Care, we provide a rich home-like environment by learning the backstories of our residents and tenants, and using this knowledge to engage each person in meaningful moments that add purpose to their lives and a feeling of contribution to their community.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
