REM Ohio’s Day Habilitation and Vocational programs benefit the indivduals we serve as well as the communities they call home. Learn more about the benefits of Day Programs
Each person who comes to REM Ohio is unique, with different challenges and goals for their lives. That’s why we tailor our wide range of Day Habilitation and Vocational Programs to the needs and interests of each individual we serve. We offer both Recreation and Social and Work Skill Development activities in a nurturing social environment where adults can form lasting friendships, developing new skills that help them live life to the fullest.
Our specially trained staff partner with the individual, their family members and other significant people in their lives to create an Individualized Service Plan (ISP). This plan identifies each adult’s unique needs, interests and preferences for service. With staff support, adults build social and other life skills related to their ISP, including:
- Getting along with peers
- Anger management
- Problem solving
- Decision making
- Independent living skills, such as cooking or managing money
- Motor skills
Flexible Programs That Respect Choice
We believe that personal choice is essential to helping someone reach their full potential. With staff support, individuals choose activities that interest them and help them meet the goals identified in their ISP. One individual may be interested in learning computers and developing independent living skills, while another may want a paid work opportunity.
Whatever the need or interest, adults are actively engaged in planning their activities and determining the level of support they receive. We believe this is the best way to ensure that they achieve the personal growth they desire and have a fulfilling experience with us.
