Day Support, Community Involvement & More

For 50 years, RVI has been honored to provide the best care and support services with the most options available for people with disabilities in Ottawa County. What began with basic employment opportunities has quickly grown into a wide array of opportunities for individuals with development disabilities to live the life they want to live! We now offer a range of services including non-work/day services and in-home care. Take a look, and see what our programs are doing for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Community Integration

In all aspects of the care and services we provide, RVI strives to help each person we serve to be part of his or her community and live the life they want to live.

Our team works to implement “person-centered plans” developed by the person served; their family or other supportive people; county board of developmental disabilities; and/or other agencies, so each person has the life that they want to live. Should an individual choose this approach, work skills development is geared toward the eventual goal of securing a job in the community.

Adult Day Support

RVI’s Day Support Services provides a safe and enriching environment. We want individuals to live the best lives possible by acquiring new skills, building community membership and independence, and expanding personal choice.

RVI provides community-based services for the enrichment of the people we serve. We offer many different opportunities to people with a wide variety of abilities and challenges. Sometimes activities are for groups and, other times they take place in an one-on-one setting, depending on the individual’s preference and needs. We are here to support them!

Health and safety are of the utmost importance as we focus on each individual and assist them to have the life they desire. We do more than meet needs. The RVI team is here to help people achieve their personal goals. Our staff can assist with personal care and feeding, medical needs, behavioral and mental health challenges, and more.

Check below to see some examples of the adult day programs we coordinate.

 

Nursing Services

RVI has nurses on staff to oversee the medical needs of the individuals we serve.

A licensed practical nurse is in the employment and day services center every work day to administer medication; document issues and concerns; communicate with other medical professionals; and provide other forms of care, including diabetes testing and insulin injections, gastric tube feeding, first aid, referrals, etc. A registered nurse oversees all of the nursing services, and provides training on medication administration and delegated nursing tasks.

Many of our direct support professionals are also trained to administer medication prescribed by a doctor – including diabetic testing and insulin administration.

Supported Living

Supported Living is defined as “a service model based on principles that emphasize a person’s choice, self-determination, and community integration.”

Many people who have developmental disabilities want to live as independently as possible, while maintaining relationships with family members and friends. RVI provides services that allow them to live in and enjoy their communities.

The Center for Medicaid Services refers to this as “Homemaker and Personal Care Services,” but we provide much more than that. Health and safety are always at the forefront, however, they are not the only ways our team provides support. We also focus on helping adults set and accomplish goals; pursue hobbies and interest;, grow and maintain relationships; and do all the other things that are part of leading a fulfilling life.

This support can take many forms. Some people live in homes that are fully staffed by direct support professionals who provide daily living and personal care services. Others, live on their own, but need help with transportation; meal planning and preparation; medication administration; cleaning; budgeting money and paying bills; shopping; or other aspects of daily life.

Other times, families use the HPC services when they can’t be home for some time – for example, assistance until a family member can come home from work, or when a family member will be out of town. Our team is trained to administer medication prescribed by a doctor.

As with all of the services provided by RVI, we are here to ensure individuals are safe and healthy and help them to lead the lives they want to live. Everyone deserves to be part of their communities!
