Residential care specialists: providing teamwork, care, and support.

Be a key part of our treatment care where you’ll interact directly with patients and help them develop new skills to move toward greater independence.

At Rogers we have a long history of providing residential care. Offering evidence-based treatment for children, teens, and adults, our nine residential care options are internationally recognized for outcomes and quality care. Patients stay between 30 and 90 days.

Our residential care specialists are a key part of our treatment, working within an interdisciplinary team supporting patients. On the front line of care, residential care specialists interact directly with our patients—helping them develop new skills and move toward greater independence.

Collaborating with psychiatrists, nurses, and other residential care specialists, this is a role with visible and rewarding results. It’s also a multi-faceted role where residential care specialists make a direct impact as they assist with overseeing residents’ care, along with the treatment, activities, and outings designed to meet their specific needs.

This is an opportunity to develop and progress in a mental health career with the potential to make a lasting impact by supporting patients. Working with treatment experts, residential care specialists can provide clear insights to the team while learning about different diagnoses and treatment plans, including cognitive and dialectical behavior therapies.

Our residential care specialist roles are often suited for new graduates with a degree in psychology or human services, or with experience in behavioral health. It’s also a role that requires patience, compassion, a perceptive nature, and a positive outlook.
