REM River Bluffs
1621 10th St SE
Rochester, MN 55904
507-287-6824 Ext. 2516
Wade Welper – Director
For more nearly four decades, REM River Bluffs, Inc. (or “REM”) has been an active participant in the provision of services and programs to individuals with developmental disabilities. The company began service delivery in the state of Minnesota in 1967, when it opened its first community-based ICF-IDD for individuals who were then leaving the State’s developmental centers. Based on the vision and commitment of Robert E. Miller, for whom the company is named, each REM program is designed to meet the needs of the individual, coordinating his or her strengths with the supports available in the community.
A trailblazer in the de-institutionalization movement in the state of MN, REM has since expanded and enhanced its programming to build a coordinated network of services and supports. We expanded even further when we became part of The Mentor Network (our national parent company) in 2003, although REM Minnesota remains the top leader within this network of programs.
REM’s mission is to create a culture of support to assist individuals in gaining the life they value by providing options for living in the community. REM was founded on the belief that individuals should have the opportunity to receive services and supports in their own communities, regardless of the complexity of their condition, severity of their disability or challenges in their behavior. We endeavor to offer strong supports for attaining interdependence and ongoing opportunities for personal growth.
REM believes that for any individual to achieve full integration into their community they need to develop interdependence. Based on that belief, we seek to create a circle of supports that will enable each individual to realize the life they choose, balancing “important to” with “important for”. In looking for more cost effective opportunities to serve individuals in less restrictive settings, many factors are taken into consideration. Planning starts with the individual in conjunction with their team.
Throughout Olmsted and Winona Counties, REM River Bluffs serves approximately 300 individuals, many of whom have a dual diagnosis of a mental illness, traumatic brain injury, chemical health, intellectual disability or another pervasive developmental disorder and may qualify for CADI, TBI, Elder, or DD waivers.
Delivered under contract, current service options within REM River Bluffs include, but are not limited to: adult foster care arrangements, 40 group homes, periodic/hourly support in individual’s own homes, Children’s after school/summer services (CROCS), a Board and Lodge for adult males, Respite services, 5 alternative service apartments focused on learning independent skills, and 4 Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF-IDD). Within the waiver homes operated, we have specialty homes that include: Brain Injury homes, Mental Health specialty homes, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), High medical needs, Autism, Children’s Behavioral, and Offender services specializing in sex offenses. The options vary based on the needs and desires of the person served. Often the individual will move through a continuum of services as their strengths grow and their need for supervision and support decreases or
