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.
