Ted L. Tims Director of Dining Services

As he was getting older, he decided the late nights weren’t as conducive to his lifestyle, so he thought he would give senior living a try. Over the last nine years, he’s discovered great joy in taking care of the older population and is looking forward to this new chapter here at The Retreat at Alameda.
