Kids Path is a unique program for children, teens and their families, facing the challenge of coping with a serious progressive condition. Kids Path’s pediatric home care team offers physical, emotional and spiritual care with a goal of enhancing the quality of life for children, teens and those who share their lives.
Kids Path services are available beginning with a diagnosis. Helping families navigate the health care system, is an important part of the Kids Path program. Our team works closely with the child’s physician and family to plan and coordinate care. Here are some of the ways we can help.
Home Health Care
A Kids Path staff RN can make intermittent home visits (as ordered by a doctor) for children with serious progressive conditions. Other Kids Path team members may include:
- KP nurses.
- KP social workers.
- KP counselors (for patient, family, siblings).
- KP volunteers.
- Nurse tech.
- Physical therapist.
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.
We offer services for expectant parents and babies diagnosed before birth with a condition that is expected to be life-threatening at, or shortly after, birth.
