AltaPointe’s Adult Residential Services are designed for consumers with serious and persistent mental illness who require social rehabilitation and community support. Combining medical, nursing and clinical services, our staff provides care and treatment for more than 200 adults in need of intensive service provision. The Adult Residential Services Program consists of group homes, which are supervised 24 hours/day when consumers are on the premises. Expected outcomes are the same for each adult group home: to prevent re-hospitalization and to maximize and maintain successful community placement. Residential care focuses on the rehabilitation and return to the community of seriously mentally ill consumers.
Behavioral Aides in the residential setting are responsible for providing basic observation and monitoring of consumers in the group home, providing daily assessment of consumer’s behavior, providing training on basic living skills, transporting the consumers to appointments and outings, distributing the consumer’s medication, assisting consumers with personal care, and the preparation of the consumer’s meals.
