The Arc of Riverside County is a non-profit that serves adults with intellectual & other developmental disabilities. Over the years, The Arc has significantly increased the quality of life for these individuals.
The goal of the Fairmount Resource Center (FRC) is to provide long-term services to adults with developmental disabilities. Our services are for those who are in need of full-time programming to ensure the development and maintenance of functional skills required for self-advocacy, community integration, employment and self-care.
SERVICES AND SUPPORTS:
At the FRC, we cater to adults with severe to profound developmental disabilities. The individual’s needs are of the highest priority. With a low consumer-to-staff ratio, we ensure proper one-on-one instruction.
The Arc of Riverside believed that proper training leads to expanded opportunities. This is why we offer expert training at the FRC in the following areas:
– Self-help skills
– Activities of daily living
– Vocational skills
– Community awareness
– Social interaction sills
The FRC is one of two Adult Development Centers in the Inland Empire that is licensed for all the restrictive medical conditions that have traditionally prevented adults with severe to profound developmental disabilities form participating in adult day services.
Due to the nature of this program, The Arc employes a full-time Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) to provide nursing care services to the individuals we serve. Our LVN also oversees the training of our direct care staff.
Medical conditions accommodated at this facility include, but are not limited to:
– Medication administration
– Use of oxygen
– Insulin dependent diabetes
– Inhalation-assistive devices
– Colostomy-ileostomy care
