Managing chronic diseases can be very challenging, however, people who take an active role in participating in a chronic condition management program usually enjoy a more active and fulfilling lifestyle. Our Chronic Care Management programs focus on involving patients in the health care process so they can achieve more independence and a better quality of life.
The goal of each of our programs is to reduce hospitalizations and keep our patients comfortable in their own homes. Our plans of care include the most current medical evidence and resources to ensure maximum success with each patient.

A combination of skilled nursing care to treat the surgical wound and therapeutic rehabilitation to address the internal joint or implant all in the comfort of the patient’s own home provides the optimal environment for recovery after an orthopedic surgery or injury. Our goal is to assist the patient in reaching the highest possible level of independence in the comfort of their home.

Pain Management at Home
Chronic pain can be debilitating and agonizing if left untreated and it significantly impacts quality of life for patients and their families. Our pain management program is designed to actively involving all parties involved including not just the patients themselves but also caregivers, nurses and any other therapeutic discipline needed. Together, we develop a holistic plan of care based on each patient’s individual condition. Using the best clinical evidence currently available, Kamcare Home Health Services clinicians work with the patient and family, teaching the skills needed to help them continue to control pain after the home health care has ended.
Balance is the Key
Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal, unintentional injuries treated in a hospital ER department–and the leading reason for admission to a skilled nursing facility. In the U.S. alone, one of three adults over the age of 65 falls each year, and more than half fall more than once. This annual rate increases to one of two over the age of 80. Kamcare Home Health Services Balanced is the Key Program is a comprehensive program that evaluates each patient to develop a systematic approach to treatment. The goal is restoration and management of the balance disorder to facilitate safe, independent living within the home.
