Kids Path Kids Path – Medical
Kids Path*, a program of Hospice of the Piedmont, is designed to meet the special needs of children and teens who are diagnosed with any life-limiting illness.
Hospice care is offered for children (ages birth to 18 years) with a life-threatening illness when the child’s life expectancy is measured by months rather than years. Our Kids Path team partners with a child’s physician to provide care and support for the patient and their family.
*Hospice of the Piedmont is a licensed provider of Kids Path, which was founded in Greensboro, NC.
The Kids Path team is led by the children’s counselor, who is a licensed clinical social worker, and a pediatric registered nurse with an emphasis on the needs of young patients and their families. The entire interdisciplinary care team also includes our medical providers (physicians and nurse practitioners), nursing assistants, chaplains, and volunteers. In addition to regular visits by the team, nurses are on call around the clock, every day of the week. The overall goal is to enhance the quality of life for the children and families in our care.
As with our other programs, Kids Path accepts private insurance, Medicaid and other third-party payment for medical services. Because of generous community support, care is provided regardless of financial circumstances.

Your entire team was amazing. They are very professional in their work but also have big hearts and it comes through in how they do their work and in their positive attitudes.
Thank you for making your home like her home, warm and comfortable.
Your kindness and efforts go far beyond the patients and extend to their families and friends.
Everyone who cared for my wife was, without exception, caring, kind, and exceptionally capable individuals who seemed to truly care about her well-being and care.
Your staff (at Hospice Home) was confident, thoughtful, kind and very loving to my mom. When we couldn’t be there or take care of her needs, you took care of her.
My mother spent her last days in your facility. I want to thank you for the gifts you gave to her and our family. The dignity, caring, professionalism, and kindness will remain a bright part of our saying goodbye to our mother.
My family and I would not have made it without Hospice.
For many veterans, military service is the most important thing that they have done in their lives.” As part of We Honor Veterans, those patients are now paired with a volunteer who also served in the military and share a common bond.
Thank you for all of your care, concern, education and kindness during Mom’s last year. My grief journey has had a lighter backpack because of Hospice.
Their touch, their time, their words were the comfort of a lifetime.
We were privileged to have the support of (Hospice)…They nurtured and cared for my husband as if he was their only patient.
Me consuela saber que mi esposa tuvo los mejores cuidados gracias a Hospice. La ayudaron a ella y a nuestra familia en todas las maneras posibles.
I thank God for putting good people in the right job for people like me.
We were so impressed by your staff and your desire to help us. No one wants to need Hospice, but when a person does, it is a tremendous blessing. Thanks again for the care you gave my dad, and ultimately all of us.
I would like to say that you have a beautiful Hospice Home. It is so nice and serene. I love the “quiet spots” that you can go to and meditate. Thank you so much in helping make my mother’s last days on this earth a little better and comforting.
