Intermediate Care Facilities
At REM Iowa, we believe that everyone can thrive in the community with the right supports. In our Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF), we offer positive, engaging experiences and encourage the individuals we support to be active members of the community.
Nestled in communities throughout the state, our homes offer personalized support for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as other complex challenges. Through our community-based ICFs—otherwise known as group homes—we provide:
- Individualized services to help individuals become more independent
- Specialized support for those who have physical or behavioral challenges
- Countless opportunities to help individuals learn, grow and thrive
Impeccably maintained, our Intermediate Care Facilities are warm and inviting. They offer individualized services and 24/7 emergency medical support in a place that the residents can truly call home. Each of our ICFs is home to four to eight people and offers a range of services, including:
- Assistance with life skills (hygiene, cooking, cleaning)
- Social skills development
- Structured Activities
- Coordination of medical services
- Coordination of professional services
- Participation in community events
- Medication Management
We get to know each person in our ICFs and develop Individualized Service Plans that incorporate specific activities and skills-training. Staff members accompany individuals on walks, trips to nearby cities and landmarks, and other engaging community events. Medical case managers (who are licensed nurses) evaluate and work closely with each individual to ensure comprehensive medical and nutritional care in our ICFs. The case managers also work closely with various medical professionals as needed.
Quality You Can Trust
We take pride in the quality of our programs. As with all of our services, our Intermediate Care Facilities are carefully monitored by our quality improvement professionals who ensure the health, safety and happiness of each person we support. Family members and friends can rest assured that their loved ones are receiving expert clinical supports and compassionate care from our experienced team of health and human service professionals.
