The Serenity Springs Day Program in Hattiesburg offers a wide variety of educational, social and recreational opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
REM Mississippi’s day services offer an array of engaging activities to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities reach their goals and enjoy their daily activities.
We create a positive atmosphere that offers structure and excitement for program participants who look forward to seeing their friends and staff members each day.
Individualized Services and Support
Individuals in our center-based programs receive specialized coaching and work on areas such as:
- Personal safety
- Independent living skills
- Positive relationship building
- Communication skills
- Sensory development
- Healthy living
Our staff takes a hands-on approach—incorporating structured learning and fun to help individuals reach their personal goals. We get to know each person and help them with their Individualized Service Plan (ISP). Since each person’s needs change over time, we revisit goals and modify them on an as-need basis.
Unique Programs and Activities
Each program is uniquely designed—in terms of its physical structure and activities. Some of our programs may focus on helping individuals with behavior challenges, while others are designed for adults with greater medical needs. In those programs we have specialized equipment, as well as range-of-motion and sensory activities.
Depending on an individual’s plan, he or she may take part in goal-driven classes or activities involving the following:
We also provide opportunities for the individuals to go out in the community and participate in meaningful activities that can strengthen the fabric of their neighborhood. We help each person find a day program of their choosing and meet goals that change their lives for the better. Contact your local office for more information on our day programs.
