“1) The philosophy of KMS is centered around the residents and their journey toward independence. I found the staff to be realistic and supportive and would recommend any survivor of brain injury to consider KMS as a top option for living. The schedule is flexible and tailored to the client’s wants/needs, but also is setup in a way that pushes their limits.
2) As a student clinician, KMS quickly felt like home. It was a safe environment where I felt supported to make a connection with my resident partner, and to practice clinical skills that I am certain I will use in my future career.”
“I am so appreciative of the opportunities KMS (and Pacific) offered to me this term, and I know that the exposure I had to the staff and residents will stay with me as I work toward becoming a compassionate, person-first clinician. As a student working at KMS, I had the opportunity to see firsthand how the staff interfaces on a daily basis with residents at KMS. I was continually impressed by the respect shown to the residents, and I believe that this facility (KMS) is unique in its dedication to providing people with the support they need while at the same time acknowledging their individual strengths and abilities.”
“From a graduate student clinician’s perspective, I felt my experience at Kampfe Management Services (KMS) was warm and encouraging. KMS is a progressive and inspiriting establishment as it stresses the importance of respectful relationships as well as the importance of autonomy for their residents. Working with KMS was a humbling experience, as it broadened my appreciation of the human spirit. KMS strives to have the best interest of their residents at all times. KMS staff, visitors, and residents exemplify a functional collaborative team on a daily basis. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this diligent team and felt fortunate for being a part of the KMS experience for my summer practicum.”
“KMS takes a collaborative approach in the care of their clients and place a strong emphasis on the autonomy of the individual. KMS staff is mindful, intuitive, and empower client-directed goals on a daily basis. As a student clinician, the partnership between KMS and the community has been very special to me. KMS cultures an environment where the client, staff, and community members have the opportunity to learn from each other –this growth and change is cyclic, ultimately benefiting the client and furthering their independence.”
