NOVA II is a 26-bed residential program for individuals who are challenged with mental health issues in addition to medical complications. The program goals are successful reintegration into a community-based living arrangement and development of each resident’s maximum capacity for independent functioning. NOVA II residents each have their own bedrooms in large, two-person apartments with shared spaces that include a living room, dining area, kitchen, and two bathrooms. Residents are encouraged to engage in activities of daily living independently, with staff providing assistance with laundry, cleaning, bathing, dressing, and more as needed. In addition, 24-hour nursing staff are available for everything from pain management to wound care to monitoring dietary restrictions. Staff move between apartments throughout the day visiting with residents, encouraging participation in activities, and assuring safety. Nova II serves a five-county area and specializes in serving people with a history of long-term hospitalizations.
