Rosa Mackie: Helping Dreams Come True!
Submitted By: Janet Fisher | Mosaic in Central Iowa
Mosaic is a faith-based organization serving people with intellectual disabilities. Mosaic believes that every individual is a person of worth. Together Mosaic staff members, volunteers and the people supported work as partners. This partnership has resulted in individually-defined quality of life outcomes being achieved by people receiving supports.
One example of this involves Jerry, who through the Personal Outcome Measures® discovery process has identified that the indicator 'People participate in the life of the community' is especially important to him. One Mosaic employee in particular, Direct Support Professional Rosa Mackie, has taken proactive steps to ensuring that his dreams and desires are understood, and steps are taken to achieve these outcomes. You can learn about the supports that Rosa has implemented to help Jerry improve his quality of life, by watching the video below:
