Happy Friday, everyone! Tomorrow is my birthday, so I am especially looking forward to the weekend, as I do LOVE to celebrate my birthday!

This week, I had the pleasure of visiting Cheshire Home in Florham Park, NJ. (www.cheshirehome.org) Through a few mutual board members, I met with Barbara Monahan, their Director of Development and Public Relations. We had a great meeting, sharing information and ideas, and she gave me a great tour of the Home. I also had the opportunity to meet a few staff members and residents while I was there. It was obvious that this a caring, family-centered kind of place!

As much as I know about resources in our area for people with spinal cord inury, I was not familiar with Cheshire Home! I am so glad to have learned of this wonderful place which provides medical care and living arragements while fostering educational and employment placements. The goal is to help residents live independent and productive lives.

Our programs serve an overlapping population and I look forward to working with Cheshire Home when residents are discharged into the community. Perhaps Push to Walk can provide the option of a specialized exercise, health and wellness program for people with SCI where appropriate.

Thank you to the administrators and staff of Cheshire Home who provide such a wonderful environment for poeple to thrive in, and the programs and advocacy efforts to help them achieve maximum independence. Check them out!

Have a good weekend! Cynthia
