Radiant Care’s growing relationship with Niagara College is improving the lives of employees, residents, tenants, and seniors in our community, with new initiatives on the horizon.
Radiant Care and Niagara College have an ongoing partnership through which Niagara College Nursing students complete clinical placements at Radiant Care to develop their Nursing skills and gain experience working in the Long-Term Care and Community Support Service sectors.
In September, Radiant Care and Niagara College will be taking the partnership to a new level by offering an entirely on-site PSW program at Tabor Manor with some unused rooms being converted into living classrooms, complete with Long-Term Care beds and virtual, electronic residents, as well as direct access to Tabor Manor’s Long-Term Care home and Community Support Service program, in order to fulfill program clinical placement requirements. The innovative curriculum is geared to student needs through modular design, thereby striking a balance between training and work. The first class is scheduled to begin in September, with current enrollment of 24 students. This program will impact clients directly through the provision of contemporary models of care, as well as a steady volume of much-needed skilled workers.
It is through innovative partnerships such as this, that Radiant Care seeks to make an impact in addressing local Health Human Resource challenges for itself and within the broader sector.
