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 ill...ness or grief with dignified care, compassionate support and gentle guidance.
