About Mosaic Life Care

What is Mosaic Life Care Limited?

Mosaic Life Care is a non-profit organisation whose goal is to address social isolation, in particular around Canberra in the ACT with programs that offer support and encouragement.

Mosaic Life Care is here to support parents and carers in Canberra facing social isolation. Our compassionate and well-trained mentors are like 'friends with a purpose,' helping vulnerable individuals and families achieve their goals and strengthen their connections.

Our mentor engagements typically last about 12 months. During this time, our mentors provide guidance, support, and encouragement to participants, ensuring a consistent source of companionship and assistance.

To ensure the success of our mentorship programs, we have a dedicated COACH Coordinator who supports both mentors and participants. The COACH Coordinator maintains healthy relationships and helps participants access mainstream support services as needed.
