Dakota Alpha

Alpha
Dakota Alpha is located at 1303 27th St. NW in Mandan, ND. It is a twenty bed program serving brain-injured or physically disabled individuals. The program offers physical, occupational, and speech therapies, cognitive retraining, independent living skills training, social services, activities, and dietary services, and is staffed 24 hours per day by professional nursing staff. Residents must be screened for nursing care and demonstrate the potential and desire to develop a more independent lifestyle. The program is transitional in nature, meaning that it lasts anywhere from 6 to 24 months, customized to the individual needs of the resident.

If you have any questions about admission to Dakota Alpha, please call at (701)663-0376 or Rebecca Hintz, LSW, Licensed Social Worker rhintz@hitinc.org.

Dakota Alpha and Brain Injury Education

Introduction
Family members often say, "no one understands" what it is like having a family member with a brain injury. Shock, fright and bewilderment are common reactions during the medical and emotional crisis of brain injury.

This material was put together in an effort to provide information and encouragement to the resident, families and caregivers who provide support and services to individuals with brain injuries and other cognitive disabilities.

Philosophy and Goals
At Dakota Alpha we believe in a person-centered approach, simply stated that: "every human being has something of value to contribute and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of age or cognitive ability."

We create a positive environment with control and choice in which the resident develops goals that help the resident gain confidence to master his/her own life. We expect that the resident will experience pitfalls, surprises and successes during the course of daily life.
