The MOSAIC Model
The MOSAIC Model involves having people with similar capabilities living in neighborhoods within Parkridge Centre where supports are focused on their particular interests and needs. There are six (6) neighborhoods located off of the main atrium within Parkridge Centre.
Core to each Parkridge Centre neighborhood is a dinning area, living room area, activity space and the communication center. The residents living in each neighborhood often have varying needs, which means the space they live in must be designed to support their unique and varying needs. Resident rooms are single occupancy and allow the ability for the resident to personalize the space to ensure comfort. Parkridge staff are committed to providing optimum quality services in helping the residents live life to the fullest along life’s journey.
