Mosaic Programs

LATE Spring 2019

We are excited about all the programs we have scheduled for the next few months and also the success of our ongoing programs at both of our Community Resource Centres. We are grateful that the warmer weather has finally arrived (!) and with it, our outdoor pole walking program will be kicking off.

Our knitting group continues to meet weekly at our Steeles Community Resource Centre and monthly at our mid-Toronto Community Resource Centre. It’s always amazing to see what projects people are working on.

Most exciting for Mosaic was the recent trip to England for Jane Teasdale and Martha Miller. Not only did they attend the conference: ‘Shared Decision Making: Person-Centered Care and The Values Agenda (SDM-I)’, but they also met with the Alzheimer’s Society in London and made home visits with National Health Services (NHS), similar to our LHIN. And no trip to the U.K. would be complete without visits to Marks & Spencer’s and restaurants for fish & chips!
Every month, we are spotlighting one employee of Mosaic for the wonderful work that they do. This month, we honour one of our front-line Personal Support Workers for his dedication to his clients. He made it easy for us to make this decision when we found out that he would take pictures on his cell phone on his way to a client who loves photography. They would then look at the pictures together. How amazing is that??? Read more on Jayson in the ‘Spotlight On’ section.

England Revisited

Martha Miller from Mosaic featured with Professor Sir Jonathan Asbridge DSc (hc) and President and Chairman Council of the European Society for Person Centered Healthcare. Picture taken on our visit to Chelsea & Westminster Hospital in London, UK for a tour. Martha also spent the day out in the community with one of the community nurses from the NHS doing assessments!

Mosaic Spotlight on a Special Caregiver


Spotlight On...

Jayson - Personal Support Worker

Mosaic's Caregiver Recognition

As a team, we feel that Jayson deserves this recognition for many reasons:

Jayson portrays our person-centered care model on a daily basis with our clients, ensuring that our clients interests are put first. Families constantly express their gratitude about Jayson's continued care of their loved ones. He always thinks outside the box and is very resourceful when coming up with activities and new ways to engage his clients.

Jayson has a genuine passion for caring for other people. We appreciate his work ethic and positive attitude that he brings into work everyday!

Jayson is also very adventurous, check out the picture of him!

Our Caregiver Says...

"I am thankful to the Mosaic team for they are well prepared and supportive in different aspects and treat the front-line workers as gems, it's overwhelming.

Their innovation and strategies to improve the services for both the clients and workers are always evolving. They always come up with different ideas that suits the individual needs of . the clients and their families. I have been in the academic and health care field for a long time, its in my character to be inquisitive, straightforward and result-oriented, however the Mosaic team never cease to assist me. They mastered the art of listening and come up with fantastic results as well."
