Murray-Calloway County Hospital recently welcomed Katie Hoover as the newest Social Worker to the team at MCCH Hospice. Hospice social workers help clients and their families navigate planning for end-of-life care; understand their treatment plan and be vocal about their needs; manage the stresses of debilitating physical illnesses, including emotional, familial and financial; overcome crisis situations; and connect to other support services. This position also serves the role as the Volunteer Coordinator and works alongside the Hospice Chaplain with bereavement services that follow families from 13 months after a patient has passed.
Katie will be working with Charlotte Rhodes, Social Worker who has over 10 years of experience at MCCH Hospice and worked for 5 years in mental health prior to that. She plans to retire later this year.
