Our Goals for Residential Specialists

Employee Development and Advancement
At Buckeye Residential Solutions we offer an Employee Development Program designed to help our employees meet their professional goals. During one-on-one sessions with our employees, we help our residential specialists understand the milestones and training opportunities that will help them advance in their field.
Our company’s approach to employee advancement is transparent and gives fair opportunities to our hardworking team members who are interested in moving up within the company. After our residential specialists and other employees gain 1 year to 5+ years of experience working for us, they are eligible for advancement. An entry-level position as a residential specialist can lead to roles as a house manager, regional manager and program coordinator.
Before our residential specialists provide services for a new client, they each receive on-site training that enables them to understand client specific health and safety needs. While this training is essential for making sure our residential specialists are equipped to carry out our clients’ individualized care plans, this is only a small part of the training opportunities we extend to new and established caregivers at Buckeye Residential Solutions.
New employee training includes MUI, OSHA, HIPPA, CPR, First Aid and Medication Administration training. To make sure that our residential specialists and employees are well-equipped for the varied needs of our client base, we also offer continuous training workshops led by experts in their respective fields. The goal of these training workshops is to prepare our caregivers for addressing different behavioral and mental health needs, client challenges and more. This includes workshops in areas like crisis management, behavior, and mental health led by Cleveland Clinic psychologists, behavioral therapists, and Portage County Board of Developmental Disabilities trainers.
