Coping with a life-limiting illness or sorting through the feelings that go with losing someone special are some of life's most difficult challenges. If you are struggling with either situation, we can help.
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.
We encourage patients and families to call us as soon after diagnosis as possible. Obtaining information early helps people understand the role of Hospice, and gives everyone the facts they need to make an informed decision in the future.
