An agency in Greensboro will stop home health care services for terminally ill children, a change affecting nearly twenty families.

The pediatric home health care offered is part of a program called Kids Path.

In a press release, Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro announced Monday it would end the service on November 30th, giving just over two weeks of notice.

The community-based nonprofit says home care is difficult to sustain when the volume of patients is small and the geographic care area is large. It plans to connect families with other home health care providers.

Jordan Green of Triad City Beat has reported on the story. He says the parents affected are reeling from the news.

“The kind of wrap around services to try to provide a quality of life for a child who may not grow into adulthood, is totally different than a lot of other home care services.”

Kids Path will continue to provide pediatric hospice care, bereavement counseling, and medical case management services.
