At Clare Bridge of Perinton, Tim Anderson offers a special kind of care and companionship. Residents have Alzheimer's and dementia. Tim is the Activities Director. "Everybody has a history, a certain something that makes them happy, makes them go, makes them light up," he says. "You have to find it, don't give up."
"It's fun, it's exciting, just to look at the residents' responses, and we're just very proud of him," says Cindy Beckhorn, Administrator of Clare Bridge.
Those who've seen Tim in action call him a pied piper. Residents get to bask in his leadership as he guides them in daily exercise, mental workouts, and more. Tim's not just appreciated, he is loved. For his humor, his compassion, and his commitment to the Clare Bridge family, he's a News 8 Golden Giver.
