Hospice

In this episode of Fight Back we explore the topic of hospice care with Kendra Micka, a Medical Social Worker in the Department of Hospice at Kaiser Permanente, Sacramento.

Kendra received her Master’s Degree from California State University of Sacramento. She later earned her clinical license to provide therapeutic support and counseling. In addition to her work with terminally ill patients, Kendra is regularly asked to speak on caregiving, grief, community resources, dementia, and palliative care. She spent the last ten years working as a clinical social worker in the Department of Palliative Medicine at Kaiser and, before that, as a Family Consultant for a local non-profit where she provided clinical support to family caregivers.

Kendra discusses what hospice care means and what it encompasses, the choices families can make for their loved ones nearing the end of their lives, how it is covered by insurance or Medicare, and much more.
