REM Nevada’s Independent Living Services assist adults in living on their own and provide opportunities to help them shape the direction of their lives.
REM Nevada’s Day Programs offer a wide variety of structured activities, social interaction and skill-building opportunities that enrich the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our center-based day programs create an atmosphere that offers structure and excitement for program participants who look forward to seeing their friends and staff members each day.
Individualized Programs and Activities
Our modern locations are designed to meet a range of individualized skills. We place a priority on community involvement and provide an array of engaging activities to help individuals reach their goals while developing new hobbies and interests. Depending on an adult’s Individualized Service Plan (ISP), he or she may take part in goal-driven classes or activities involving:
- Arts & crafts
- Computer training
- Physical fitness
- Personal appearance
We also provide opportunities for individuals to hold jobs within our day program—giving them a sense of ownership and pride in their work. Program participants can earn wages for services such as shredding paper and cleaning the offices.
Therapeutic Services and Support
Our staff provides personalized support and individualized training to boost individuals’ confidence and help them learn new skills. In addition, we encourage adults to participate in group activities where they can interact with peers and the community. We incorporate structured learning and fun to help individuals reach personal goals that include:
- Developing vocational skills
- Becoming aware of personal safety
- Strengthening communication skills
- Learning alternative behavior strategies
- Improving independent living skills
- Enhancing mobility
We also offer active treatment and therapeutic services—including motor skills development and social rehabilitation—to individuals whose needs are more involved or those who exhibit challenging behaviors. Adults can participate in group treatment exercises or one-on-one therapy sessions, based on their Individualized Service Plans. We also provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and sensory stimulation.
Whether individuals live in group homes, Host Homes or their own home, REM Nevada offers transportation services to ensure they can attend the day program of their choosing. We help each person find a Day Program that is right for them and meet goals that change their lives for the better.
