Where is Hospice Offered
Hospice care is provided wherever the patients call home. Most often this
is in the patient's home. We also provide care in assisted living
facilities, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and our very own Kline
Hospice allows the patient to receive care in a familiar and comfortable setting.
More and more Americans are calling skilled nursing and assisted living
facilities “home," when they choose hospice services.
The most important part of bringing hospice into the assisted living or
skilled nursing facility environment is to complement the care a patient
is already receiving, and to make every effort to assist and support the
“‘What can we do for you today?’ is always the first
question we ask a hospice patient, and it’s the first question we
ask a colleague in the skilled nursing or assisted living setting as well.
Hospice of Frederick County offers additional expertise in pain and symptom
management, and access to enhanced patient benefits such as pharmaceuticals,
and bereavement support for families.
Together, both entities combine forces to provide comprehensive care for
patients and the entire family in a way that neither one could provide
fully on its own.”
Hospice of Frederick County feels privileged to provide expertise in end-of-life
care to the patients we serve in skilled nursing facilities.
