St. John’s Rehab Hospital
Dear Jane Teasdale:
On behalf of St. John’s Rehab Hospital, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your assistance and contributions in the development of the Resource Centre, located in the new John C. and Sally Horsfall Eaton Centre for Ambulatory Care.
Thanks for your knowledge and expertise in identifying the community resource services that are applicable to the patients, families and visitors of St. John’s Rehab.
They will all now be able to access information about health promotion, management and recovery as well as access to community support services.
Our great success in the development of the Resource Centre would not have been possible without your continued assistance and dedication during its initial development and implementation.
Working with you has been a pleasure and I want to express my sincere appreciation for your generous efforts and your commitment to helping us create the best possible Resource Centre for our hospital community.
Please do not hesitate to come by and visit us at the new Resource Centre at any time.

Nine Twenty One Millwood Retirement Residence
Jane and I met in 2004 when we started a networking group for health service providers to seniors in Toronto. Since that time, Jane has continued to gather information regarding community based health services so it is fitting that she share this wonderful depth of knowledge in the Resource Centre that is an essential part of Mosaic. Mosaic is now the ‘go to’ place for those seeking information regarding services for seniors in the GTA and beyond.

“On Thursday, Dec. 8, I spent a wonderful afternoon making Christmas potpourri and having tea and cookies with a lovely and lively group of seniors. We were at the offices of Mosaic Home Care Services and Community Resource Centre. www.mosaichomecare.com Jane Teasdale, one of the Principals of Mosaic had invited McDermott Footcare to come and see what they’re all about.
“Amidst tea served in porcelain cups, hot mulled cider and an abundance of Christmas cookies, we crafted our individual potpourri. The resource room smelled of Christmas – cloves, ginger, cinnamon. Kimberley Davies, Community Relations Manager of Amica at Bayview, www.amica.ca/bayview guided us through our craft projects.
“Some of the seniors reminisced about Christmases past, childhood winter adventures and a simpler time. For me, that was the best part of the afternoon – getting to know the guests and listening to their stories.
“Thank you Jane and the entire Mosaic team for your hospitality. Most of all, thank you to Jack, John, Lorna and the other guests who shared part of your lives with me over afternoon tea, cookies and potpourri. What a great reminder that foot care is not just about feet.”

“Many thanks to those whose presence supported and comforted the family over the last few months as Giuseppe prepared for his final journey in life. We would especially like to thank the following: Our beloved Malorie, Personal Support Worker, Mosaic Homecare….”

“I don’t know where to begin to thank you and Mosaic for the exceptional, professional and loving care my mother received. My mother dies with grace and dignity because of you, and only because of you and your company and the amazing staff, particularly Svetlana and Lilekah (Please look at the Star of the Globe for mention of their names). I know my mother was just one of your many clients but I never felt that way in terms of my mother’s care. She was treated as a unique individual, a woman with a life lived and a big job ahead of her which is death. You all have a wonderful innate capacity to love a life as if that person was family. That is how I felt each time I saw the care Mosaic staff give my mother.
Thank you all for your charitable donation in my mother’s name. She was a giving person and would be so honoured. My mother was a vibrant and beautiful woman with an incredible zest for life. She lived a fill and well lived life and dies gently and peacefully thanks to all of you at Mosaic. I am privileged she was my mother.
God bless you all.”
- M. Bascom
“…Special thanks to…Mosaic caregivers Dayna, Michelle, Mallory, Lorelei and Amanda for their care and compassion.”

- F. Sethna
“I wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank your company and the caregivers that it assigned to our mother during her period of recovery at home after her release from the hospital. We have no doubt that our mother’s recovery was greatly speeded and made significantly less worrisome because of the professionalism and quality of the work of your company and the caregivers.”
- M. McFadden
“Because Lesly is taking such good care of Mom, she is improving very quickly. Everyone at Amica is amazed at how well she is doing. I think Lesly deserves a lot of credit for this. Having her with Mom is making it much better for me too.”
- R.E. Greenwood
“…I did want to also make sure that your team knows how much we appreciate Mosaic’s work, professionalism, the empathy of your entire team and your amazing responsiveness. I know we called on you sometimes at the last minute and you team were always pleasant and supportive. We were so reassured when Penny was with my mother and my mother felt safe with Penny too. Please tell her how much we valued having her alongside my mother – who is the most precious person to us. So with great thanks from our family; good success with your business in the future.”
- S. Silberg
“Great service Mosaic provides. My brother and I are very impressed. If my mom was herself, she would agree!”
– J. Wilson
“Mosaic is a wonderful organization made up of very special people. Everyone took such good care of Mom; everyone gave me so much support, help, and understanding. I take great comfort knowing that Mom’s life was good to the very end.”
- R E Greenwood
“I came home from hospital following major surgery and many complications. I had never needed help before and was concerned as to how I would cope as I am an energetic and very independent woman. The young women sent to me was simply wonderful. Knowledgeable, kind, caring, and very respectful of my need for space. When we ran into some surgical complications she got me through that. She constantly encouraged my advances. Her respect and individualized care made me feel special. We quickly developed a wonderful rapport.
Her goal was to help in any way that she could. And that she did! She is a 10 plus in every way. I miss her already.”
- S Steinberg
