Tim McCarthy, Mosaic’s humble achiever, has been with Mosaic for almost 5 years. Having transitioned from Individualised Services, Tim has been in supported accommodation for almost 2 years.
A happy and gentle fellow, Tim is well liked by all team members and fellow residents. Working hard 5 days a week with Activ, Tim always looks forward to his weekend outings. Going to a movie and seeing the latest block buster would be Tim’s most favorite activity, although he also enjoys ten-pin bowling, swimming, walking and golf. Sometimes needing a little motivational encouragement, once Tim has begun a task he truly enjoys every minute of it.
While walking around the Swan River recently, Tim noticed bike riders and spoke of wishing to ride instead of just walking; it made perfect sense to him. The next weekend Tim hired a bike and rode it perfectly half way around the 10kms river circuit. Impressed with himself and encouraged with this result, the following week he successfully rode the whole way around – a full 10kms. Empowered with the achievement after that second ride, Tim had found something he truly loved to do and was good at it!
Over the next 4-5 weeks Tim continued to venture out, hire a bike and ride around the river. He has reduced his circuit time to just over an hour to travel the full 14kms.
Although Tim likes to see a movie in the morning, the afternoon has become his active riding time – an excellent balance between relaxing and then some exercise in the afternoon. Tim is truly an inspiration to us all.
