Moreno Valley

Moreno Valley Resource Center

THE PROGRAM:

The goal of the Moreno Valley Resource Center (MVRC) 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 MVRC, 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.

 

TRAINING OFFERED:

The Arc believes that proper training leads to expanded opportunities. This is why we offer expert training at the MVRC in the following areas:

 – Self-help skills
 – Activities of daily living
 – Vocational skills
 – Community awareness
 – Social interaction skills
  

 

WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM SPECIAL…A Full-time, Onsite LVN:

The MVRC 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 from participating in adult day services.

 

Due to the nature of this program, The Arc employs 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
Wounds
Use of oxygen
Insulin dependent diabetes
Inhalation-assistive devices
Colostomy-ileostomy care
Indwelling urinary catheters
Gastronomy-tube feeding/hydration
