AltaPointe offers two residential programs that provide youth aged 16 to 22 with the opportunity to make successful transitions into adulthood. The programs help these young people achieve their full potential by reaching employment, educational, living situation, money management and community life goals. Youth who participate in the programs receive shelter, skills training and support services that assist with the smooth transition to self-sufficiency, which results in the avoidance of long-term dependency of these youth on social services. Staffing patterns at both residential homes include a therapist, case manager, nurse, residential manager and 24-hour behavioral staff.
Behavioral Aides 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.
