Day Support Services

The Day Support Services Program is operated at the Magnolia Center in Lexington, Virginia, serving both Bath and Rockbridge Counties.  RACS operates two separate day support programs: Center Based Day Support and Non-Center Based Day Support (recently renamed Community Engagement).

The center based program enhances the quality of life for adults with intellectual disabilities by developing programming that is unique to the needs and wishes of the participants. Staff ensure that the health and safety needs of all participants are met and work collaboratively in groups and individually in a structured environment.

 

Program Areas include:

 

  • Daily Living Skills

  • Socialization Skills

  • Communication Skills

  • Community Integration

  • Employment Skills

  • Arts

  • Science

  • Nutrition

  • Problem Solving

  • Community Living Skills

  • Sensory Techniques utilizing a Snoezelen Sensory Room.

The emphasis is on knowing each program participant as an individual. Their specific needs and interests can then be enhanced, enriching their quality of life. Day Support Services staff use the Person Centered Planning, and Person Centered Thinking philosophy to develop individualized programming unique to each individual.   

The non-center based program follows the same philosophy as the center based program. We strive to match community engagement activities with the individuals and offer choices based on availability and the desires of the program participants. Each activity will have a maximum ratio of 1 staff to 3 program participants.

 

The Day Support Services Program works collaboratively with other RACS programs as well as other agencies. All program participants receive case management services and 2/3 are involved in Residential Services.

 

The Magnolia Center houses the “Magnolia Players”. The Magnolia Players is the only theater program in Virginia comprised of adults with developmental disabilities. The Magnolia Players create and perform productions each year.
