At Hospice of Frederick County, we offer a unique approach to care for those in the advanced stages of life-limiting illness. When quantity of time is no longer possible, we focus on quality of life. We strive to treat the whole person, and view the patient and family as a unit. By managing symptoms, easing emotional and spiritual pain, and honoring our patients' and families' priorities and personal choices, we assist individuals to live out their remaining days in peace, comfort and dignity, while supporting those they love as well. Our patients and their families often tell us that our unique approach to their care gave them back a sense of control and a different kind of hope for the future.
Hospice of Frederick County was founded in 1980 by a group of community volunteers who wished to offer compassionate support to terminally ill patients and their families, and to those who were grieving. Hospice is not about how you die, it is about how you live.
Over the years, the program has grown in size and scope, but our focus remains the same: to honor each person's journey through illness or grief with dignified care, compassionate support and gentle guidance.
