New Vista Behavioral Healthcare offers direct care services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in addition to our residential services. Through these additional services clients acquire new skills, engage in paid employment and receive temporary care when needed.
Day Training Individuals can attend one of two New Vista day training locations. Participants engage in regularly scheduled activities designed to foster the acquisition of skills, build positive social behavior and interpersonal competence. In addition, participants foster greater independence and personal choice. Through the day training programs at New Vista, individuals have the opportunity to assist with the selection and planning of activities and events which can include visits to local libraries, community events and festivals, bowling and any number of activites.
