Happy Holidays!
Friends of Cyrus would like to wish all of our families, friends, peers, and the incredible individuals we serve Happy Holidays to send off the year! Thank you all for following us along this incredible journey. We cannot wait to show you all of the big things we have planned for 2022.

In this final issue of our In-Home Supports newsletter for 2021, we wanted to recommend some holiday-oriented, IDD-friendly activities you can share with your loved ones this winter. We also have an announcement regarding our In-Home Support Department that you don't want to miss!
If you or anyone you know requires support services for an adult with disabilities, please contact our In-Home Supports Team to get the help you need.

Holiday Music & Caroling
Enjoying holiday tunes with those closest to you is another fun activity that not only stimulates the senses, but can also be therapeutic in the appropriate setting. It can also promote social interaction and connection through listening to music as a group. There are a number of towns in NJ that host festive music events, so be sure to check in with your community's events calendar and partake in some musical cheer this year!

Holiday Cookie Baking
Nothing beats a fresh-baked holiday cookie, and making them from scratch is just as satisfying! Baking as a group is an excellent way to promote social interaction as well as exercise fine motor skills and activities of daily living such as following instructions or recipes. BRIT + CO published an incredible article with 24 Insanely Easy Christmas Cookie Recipes For The Holidays, so be sure to click the link and try one out.

Friends of Cyrus is a Human Services agency that provides community-based residential programs, in-home support services, and day habilitation services to New Jersey’s developmentally disabled adults. Since its inception, Friends of Cyrus has operated with an unwavering mission in mind: to create a haven of lifetime support options for individuals with disabilities. Friends of Cyrus currently supports over 120 adults throughout Burlington and Middlesex Counties with a focus on fostering independence, dignity, privacy, choice, and individuality

Friends of Cyrus was founded in 2013 by Daren Singhani, the former CEO of a healthcare staffing company, and Kamelia Kameli, a veteran in the healthcare industry and the parent of an adult son with autism. Kameli’s son, Cyrus, was diagnosed with Autism at an early age and inspired the founding of the agency.
