Home based care

Teams of KCH staff regularly travel to clients’ homes as a means following up on CWDs and their families to monitor progress, utilization and viability of the rehabilitation interventions. This provides an opportunity for KCH to adapt services to suit specific needs of individual CWDs in their home environments and involve all family members in the rehabilitation process.

In the course of the home based care visits, the team provides various services including assessment of CWDs, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, counselling, measurement and fitting of assistive devices, construction of therapy equipment at home using locally available raw materials and empowering caregivers with basic rehabilitation skills. The team also meets with community leaders to create awareness about disabilities and their management.
