Florida Presbyterian Homes is pleased to recognize Doug M. as the Wellness Star for February 2020. Congratulations Doug!
For this month’s wellness star award, we focused on the vocational dimension of wellness. Work that utilizes a person’s skills while providing personal satisfaction is valuable for society as experienced professionals, caregiver, mentors and volunteers.
Doug enjoyed a long career as a project manager. His gifts and talents from his professional life have served him well with volunteer opportunities to both organize and manage. Doug enjoys getting to know people and connecting with those around him. Now that he is retired, volunteering has given him a wonderful way to network and connect with people here at FPH.
“I want to make a personal contribution to Florida Presbyterian Homes,” said Doug, “and I want to help people in the process.” Doug takes pride in helping people connect with a task they are interested in and enjoy.
When asked what wellness means to him, Doug said, “It’s physical and mental wellness combined. Being mentally well is just as important as the physical aspect of wellness. It’s your mental attitude that can affect your longevity.”
Well said Doug. Here’s to many more years of wellness for all!
