Everything we believe in at KMS challenges the status quo. We think differently about helping adults who have a brain injury by keeping the client at the center of care, striving to achieve mutually agreed upon goals that are centered on independence, function, and quality of life.
At KMS We Believe…
With independence as our primary goal we place a high priority on Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). With this focus and our unique analysis we are able to identify, in conjunction with our partners, an optimal outcome status. The challenge we face is that just like no two people are the same, no two brain injuries (TBI) are the same but we (and our industry)need to continue to improve our ability to predict, achieve and maintain valued outcomes for rehabilitation. Our expertise in behavioral management and cognitive retraining, late-extended transitional rehabilitation, and residential placement or at-home rehabilitation with the client who are independent in ADL’s is what we offer to each KMS client.
As most professionals, observers and care-takers know, successful care does not always mean a return to pre-morbid functioning. Our focus on quality does mean good technical care and it also means sharing the responsibility with the client for establishing functional restoration goals. The concrete tasks associated with daily life (ADL’s) that are important to the client (and family) must be discovered. Often families of survivors have as much or more difficulty making adjustments than the survivor. Therefore we understand that the burden of distress within a family becomes a legitimate objective in brain injury care. As a result the management of interpersonal relationships is primary, not secondary, in importance and should be one of the measured results.
