REM Nevada’s activity-based day programs give adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities the chance to achieve goals, increase independence and be active in the communities that they call home.
At REM Nevada, we believe that a home is more than a house; it’s where we grow and develop lasting relationships with the people we call family. In our community-based Residences—also known as ISLA Group Homes—we help adults and adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities live as independently as possible in communities of their choice.
Each home is unique, offering a range of amenities including:
- Spacious rooms
- Comfortable furniture
- Sparkling kitchens
- Modern, accessible bathrooms
- Personalized bedrooms
- Outdoor space
Personalized Service and Support
In this residential program, we provide a variety of support and service options designed around the needs and interests of the individuals in each home—ranging from 24/7 in-home support or hourly assistance with planned activities. Because of our flexible, person-centered approach, we provide all individuals in our Community-based Residences with a level of care designed to help them thrive and feel at home. Our support services may include assistance with:
- Personal hygiene
- Cooking and housekeeping
- Coordination of transportation
- Social skills development
- Financial management
- Accessing community resources and events
Our residences and staff are suited to handle the unique needs of each individual and may feature contracted behaviorists, nutritionists, and nurse consultants on an as-need basis.
When someone is ready to move into one of our homes, we take the time to get to their interests and what makes them unique. Our homes are staffed with Direct Support Professionals and other human services staff who develop Individualized Service Plans (ISPs) to help each individual reach new milestones. Using our individualized approach, we get to know each person and strive to match them with peers who have similar interests.
