24-Hour Supported Living Arrangements
Trinity’s Residential Program in the Reno-Sparks area has seven 24-hour environments that enable adults with developmental disabilities to achieve their greatest potential. Our belief is that the homes are those of the individuals who live there. The staff, known as Independent Living Counselors (ILC’s), is trained to provide assistance in achieving greater independence in all aspects of life, including social, recreational, daily living skills, and personal care. People are supported in enhancing their life skills, including meal planning and preparation, social interactions, and participating in recreational activities. An outcome-oriented approach is used in planning for services so each individual's personal priorities are the focus of services and support. Each person is part of his or her own team that chooses personal goals and identifies needed services. Provided support includes staff for twenty-four hours, including awake overnight staff. All ILC’s are trained in CPR/First Aid, medication administration, and a variety of topics related to the field of developmental and cognitive disabilities.
Supported Living Arrangements: (Individualized Intermittent Supports)
Intermittent SLA services are provided to individuals who live independently in the Reno/Sparks community, either in an apartment setting or with family. The level of staff support can range from a few hours a day to several hours a week based on the needs of the individual as agreed upon by the support team. Intermittent supports often include assistance with budgeting, meal planning, food preparation, grocery shopping, advocacy, employment, household chores, social planning, community access, as well as medical support. The ultimate goal is to teach the individual the necessary skills to live as independently as possible.
