Tim McCarthy, Mosaic’s humble achiever, has been with Mosaic for almost five years. Transitioning from Individualised Services, Tim has been in supported accommodation for several years.
A happy and gentle fellow, Tim is well liked by team members and fellow residents. Working hard five days a week with Activ, Tim looks forward to his weekend outings.
Going to a movie and seeing the latest block buster is Tim’s favourite 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. 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 few weeks, Tim continued to venture out, hire a bike and ride around the river. He 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.
