Welcome to our Demo Room!
It’s been a long time coming but the RAGE Demo Room is open for visitors….. And we’ve designed our Demo Room to give our consumers and community partners a visual outlet to acquaint themselves with some of the different types of modifications available, as well as some of the assistive devices that enable independent living.
Rebuilding All Goals Efficiently Inc. (RAGE) under the direction of Reggie Bennett, Executive Director, provides many modifications, services and assistive devices under the Aging and Disability Services Division’s (ADSD) Independent Living program (IL). The Independent Living program is a statewide program initiated in 1992.
Since 2005, we at RAGE have been proud to promote and facilitate the Independent Living Program in Southern Nevada, while the Northern Nevada Independent Living Program is currently promoted and facilitated by Care Chest of Nevada.
The RAGE organization is very pleased that its affiliation with this program has enabled the staff to aid hundreds of people with disabilities within our community. People who were enabled to live independently within their homes, as well as assisting them with their mobility needs either within, or outside of their residences, and back into the community.
We applaud our State leaders and the staff at ADSD for working so diligently over the years to sustain funding for a great service program that has been a wonderful benefit to those with limited funding and resources to maintain their independence. Otherwise, many of these same people would have been (or would need to be) placed in skilled nursing homes or institutional settings because they, or their family members, could not afford the modifications necessary to remain at home either alone, or with their family members.
The Demo Room at RAGE is designed to show our consumers some of the modifications or adaptations that could be funded and placed within their homes. Some of the items came to us from former clients and their families who participated in the RAGE Client Give Back Program and the items may again re-cycle out to other clients in need and be replaced with others. However, our
Demo Room could not have been possible in any way without the very generous donations, support and commitment of our vendors and contractors. They’ve given us their time, monetary donations, their products and/or labor, and personally involved themselves in our mission and the needs of our clients. Our very special ‘partners’ in the Demo Room and “unlocking the doors to independence” are GraEagle Construction, the Ability Center, Chermac Builders, Care Chest of Southern Nevada, TMD Medical Distributor, Nova Ortho Medical, Best Bath Systems, Home Depot, and Williams Electric, and we cannot thank them enough for their contributions to our successes for our clients.
We hope you’ll come and visit this exciting feature at RAGE but please call
to schedule a time with one of our staff to view the Demo Room. There will also be future programs held within the Demo Room and we will post subject matter and dates and times in the Challenger Newspaper and our website so you can also visit during a session focusing on a specific area or informational topic.
We look forward to seeing you at the Demo Room at RAGE!
