Medical Services for Children

Kids Path is a specialized program of AuthoraCare Collective. We offer different levels of care to respond to your child’s needs.
When a child is diagnosed with a serious condition, the family faces questions and challenges. Please know you are not alone.

We have such respect and deep appreciation for the care and love you provide your child. We are available to help with changes in your child’s condition and symptoms, as well as to lend a caring hand, an open heart and a listening ear.

Pediatric Hospice Care

Our Kids Path clinical staff offers a team approach to care for children with life-limiting conditions. These children usually have a life expectancy of months rather than years. A physician’s order is required for hospice care and may include a variety of services, such as nursing care, counseling and volunteer services for all family members. Unlike adult hospice care, pediatric hospice can be provided alongside curative treatment.

In addition to a Kids Path registered nurse (RN), additional support may be provided by:

  • Chaplain.
  • Counselors (for patient, family, siblings).
  • Certified nursing assistant. 
  • Pediatrician.
  • Social workers.
  • Volunteers.

Home Health

Kids Path’s Burlington Campus provides home health services to children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses or conditions. Home Health services include routine nursing visits, social work and counseling services and other therapies as ordered by the physician. 

CAPC/C Case Management

For patients who are enrolled in Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP/C), Kids Path’s Greensboro Campus nurses serve as the case manager, developing a plan of care and coordinating services and supplies.

Perinatal Services

We offer supportive services for parents who are expecting a baby with a life-threatening condition at, or shortly after, birth. 

Perinatal services include:

  • Assistance with addressing goals during pregnancy, delivery and the time following the baby’s birth.
  • Supportive counseling for parents and siblings.
  • Access to resources and referrals as needed.
  • Assistance with the creation of memories and keepsakes.
  • Plan of care for the baby at home if desired.
