NEW HOME CARE COMPANY GOES BEYOND CARE WITH MOSAIC COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTRE
Mosaic makes a difference by providing both home care services and a unique community resource centre.
TORONTO, ON (September 6th, 2010) – Mosaic Home Care and Community Services, a new Canadian owned and privately run company founded by veteran care providers Jane Teasdale, Nathalie Anderson and Mercedes Santos, has launched with a unique mission. Beyond providing compassionate home care services, Mosaic offers a unique community resource centre where people of all ages and needs can visit a comprehensive one-stop centre to learn about important community services and more.
Mosaic’s team of professional caregivers provides non-medical services in the Greater Toronto Area, including York Region, to enhance the lives of those in need of care, to allow them to remain independent and integrated with their community and friends, whether in their own home, retirement home or long term care facility. They can give relief to family caregivers and can provide for those needing short term, overnight, live-in and 24 hour care. They offer services for people of all ages and needs including palliative care patients, those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, Parkinson’s, Veterans, new and expectant mothers and support for people with disabilities.
“What truly makes us different is our Community Resource Centre explains Jane Teasdale, Principal. “Through our many years involved in home care, and the many contacts we have established, we have created a network of outstanding resources, which families can now have at their fingertips.”
The Mosaic Community Resource Centre provides information on homecare solutions, retirement homes, day programs, elder abuse help, downsizing, community programs, community agency information, government programs and more. “Mosaic also believes that lifestyle is an important aspect to the health and well being of our clients,” says Nathalie Anderson, Principal. “It is why we have created the Mosaic Club, where our clients can enjoy activities and interests in the company of others in a warm and welcoming environment. They will also enjoy a wide variety of talks and presentations. It’s one more way we make a genuine difference in the lives of those we serve.”
Mosaic understands that having someone come into their home is a big step. “It is why, at the heart of our approach, we ensure that our caregivers are not only as passionate about the care of our clients as we are, but they are also a part of a caring business,” explains Mercedes Santos, Principal. “Our caring people bring a world of experience, joy and compassion to the lives of those we serve. It is a difference they will appreciate.”
The principals and caregivers of Mosaic have a passion to serve their clients and families with a new approach to care that will make a difference in their clients’ lives and in their communities.
Mosaic is conveniently located in the Shops on Steeles and 404 and is open Monday to Friday – 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays – 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

We would like to point out an error in your article “Thornhill’s better care: Mosaic building blocks to better home care” that appeared in the Liberal on Friday September 10th. The article stated that “the women admit while government run and non-profit home care organizations are their competition, by no means is Mosaic against the idea of individuals seeking those options.”
We would like to make clear that we are not in competition with the CCAC (Canadian Community Care Access) which provides wonderful support for people in the community: as a private homecare company the care we provide complements, but is over and above, that provided by CCAC, which is government funded and free.
Private home care companies should always make sure that their clients have contacted CCAC and secure the care they are entitled to from the government before making service contracts.
We are a community focussed homecare company who believe in the importance of for profit and not for profit companies working together for the benefit of the community. Caring for the elderly is going to become more and more important as demographics change and together we will need to find innovative ways of increasing the availability of care by bringing all elements of the community together.
The essence of our community resource centre is to help inform the public about all the options available, which means informing them of the many not for profit organisations as well as necessary for profit companies that can be of help to them. Non profit agencies are very valuable resources for those in need of care.
Over the years, we are well aware, that the Liberal has been active in promoting home and elder care education and in raising awareness of this important issue, and we would like to extend our support to the very important service the paper has given and continues to give to the community.
