The 33rd Annual Brain Injury Association of Michigan’s Conference took place September 22-23, 2016, at the Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan. Cypress Home Care sponsored the conference and participated with a booth to educate attendees on our home healthcare services. Over 1,500 brain and spinal cord injury professionals were in attendance. Brain injury and spinal cord injury survivors were also in attendance during the two-day conference.
Cypress Home Care provided “rice socks” for all attendees. Rice socks are tube socks filled with white rice. After microwaving the rice socks for a couple of minutes, one places the sock on an aching muscle and voila! The rice sock immediately relieves aches and pains. The rice socks were definitely the hit of the conference. Pictured below are just a few of the attendees who loved the socks!
Origami’s 10th Annual Brain Injury Symposium of Mid-Michigan was held on Friday, June 3, 2016 at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. The event

Cypress Home Care was an event sponsor and participated with an exhibitor booth that was attended by Amanda McClain and Miranda Thomason (pictured below).
Cypress Home Care sponsored Tri-County Office on Aging’s 2016 Run For the Ages event that took place on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at Hawk Island County Park in Lansing, Michigan. Over 200 people walked, ran, and wheeled the 5K course to raise money for Tri-County’s Office on Aging’s various programs serving older adults, persons with disabilities, families, and caregivers.
Cypress Home Care’s very own Care Coordinator, Amanda McClain, volunteered to pass out water to all runners, walkers, and wheelers. Cypress’s owner, Jeff Chiodi, and his wife and daughter walked the 5k course in support of this very worthwhile event.
Miranda Thomason, Cypress Home Care’s care coordinator, volunteered her services to help pass out bicycle helmets at the annual Lids For Kids event on Saturday, May 21, 2016. This event was sponsored by the Sinas Dramis Law Firm, Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center, and the Brain Injury Association of Michigan. Over 600 free bicycle helmets were given away.
This very worthwhile event creates awareness about Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and promotes the use of helmets for people of all ages when bicycling. TBIs are life-alternating and in many instances can be avoided by taking precautions such as using bicycle helmets.
