Florida Presbyterian Homes has awarded the entire Wellness Committee with the Wellness Star for December 2019. Typically, one FPH resident is selected each month based on their commitment to a particular dimension of wellness. But this month’s wellness star focuses on the many, many aspects of wellness.
According to Wellness Director Alison Kennedy-Hand, Florida Presbyterian Homes is lucky to have such a wonderful blend of residents to represent their resident Wellness Committee. They’re a committed group of individuals who set time aside to meet monthly, help with various wellness activities throughout the year, manage a wellness budget, and plan activities all for the benefit of the FPH residents.
“I’m only a department of one,” said Alison, “and I truly could not do what I do without their support and help.” Members of the Wellness Committee include: Marilyn R., Barbara K., Chris W., Don P., Roger C., Dolores J., Fran H., Sally F., Bud W. and Grace W.
The Wellness Committee works closely with Alison to keep residents active. Their purpose is defined by the following: The Wellness Committee aims to provide and promote wellness opportunities for FPH residents by coordinating with staff to encourage participation in a variety of activities — physical, mental, spiritual and social. The committee focuses on maximizing a healthy lifestyle for each resident for as long as possible.
“The members work very hard to keep residents active with their unwavering commitment to fulfill the purpose of this committee,” said Alison. “Their continued devotion to helping improve resident quality of life is to be commended.”
Congratulations to the Wellness Committee for this month’s Wellness Star award. You are recognized for volunteering your time on behalf of the residents and for your ongoing assistance with the Wellness Program at Florida Presbyterian Homes. Way to go!
