More About Us

Frederick Living is a close-knit not-for-profit continuing care retirement community. For more than a century our focus has been on living well in every aspect of our lives … body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in our Mennonite heritage, we honor the dignity and autonomy of each person who lives and works here, regardless of their faith journey.

The goal for the 2021 Amazing Raise is to raise $200,000 during the Amazing Raise to complete our 125th Anniversary: Lighting the Way Campaign whose overall goal is $1.1 million:

The objectives of the campaign are the following, but the biggest needs are the top two:

  • To assist with renovations in Cedarwood skilled nursing to enhance the comfort and convenience of its residents with a number of improvements.

After a comprehensive facility assessment of the Cedarwood Skilled Nursing Building, we prioritized a five-year plan of needed improvements. The campaign will support the capital budgeted funding to make some of the changes including:

  • Creation of a private family visiting room
  • Significant upgrades to our therapy room including new equipment & more.
  • Renovations to kitchens and dining rooms
  • Renovations and updates to resident rooms and bathrooms giving them more comfortable, home-like feel and convenient features.
  • Conversion of some semi-private rooms to private rooms
  • Creating a a new conference room for resident care conferences with families
  • Updating spa bathrooms with modern tubs and other features
  • To support and grow our Benevolent Care fund. This funding supports residents who, through no fault of their own, can no longer fully cover the cost of their care.  This allows these residents to continue to receive the same great care that all residents receive.
  • To partially assist with purchase of Emergency Generators which will fully power the all the buildings in the central core of our campus including our three care areas and public spaces.
  • To assist Covid-19 extra expenses relief-this will help with expenses related to personal protective equipment and cost of weekly or twice weekly testing of staff and other extra expenses related to the pandemic.


“My thanks for everyone caring for my dad, during this COVID-19 pandemic.” – James R. Young

“Frederick Living has kind, hard-working caregivers.” Connie Armburster

“Thank you for caring for the residents who’ve become friends there during this season of distancing.” – Dena Baver, volunteer

“The words can only begin to express our appreciation for the “life” dad lived at Frederick. Living is truly the core of Frederick rather than just maintaining. Each of you blesses so many lives beyond the resident’s – family, friends, neighbors and community. Praying for your continued success in enriching the lives of others.” –
Susan Davis

“There are not enough words in the English language to express my gratitude and appreciation for all the loving care my mother received at Aspen Village (memory support). The staff went above and beyond in their efforts to take care of her. When I could no longer take care of her myself they became an extension of my love for my mother.”  – Linda Saul

“We strive to live out ‘person centered’ care for our residents at all levels of living. We are really excited to build on this with some new resources and training in the Montessori method of Dementia care that are adding additional person-centered services for our residents living in our Memory Support Neighborhood and in Cedarwood, our skilled care/rehab and long term care area.” – Emily Messner, Life Enrichment Coordinator
