    What Is Continuing Care?


    Being a continuing care retirement community means we provide the full spectrum of person-centered care from short-term rehab to round-the-clock care.


    Our care is consciously and unambiguously person-centered. This means we seek to preserve the dignity and autonomy of every person who lives here...


    We are emphatically a community. Our small-town feel means that we know each other, we care about each other, and we feel connected to each other.



    Frederick Living cares for and enriches the lives of older adults, while valuing the staff, volunteers and community that serve them.
