About Snowline Hospice
Joint Commission Accredited
Our Mission at Snowline is
serving our community by
supporting patients near end-of-life and
guiding loved ones through grief.
Snowline, established in 1979, is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to to serving our community by enhancing the lives of those with chronic, serious illness, and patients nearing end-of-life.
The care provided to patients and families is carried out by a Snowline Interdisciplinary team of professionals that includes physicians, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, medical social workers, spiritual care providers, hospice aides and volunteers.
The majority of Snowline's dedicated staff has earned the distinction of "Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care," an advance level of education.
Hospice benefits are included in Medicare and Medi-Cal and most health insurance plans. The uninsured and palliative care recipients are also served at Snowline through funds received from the proceeds of Snowline's six thrift stores, a recycle and repurpose processing center enterprise, individual donations, fundraisers, and the United Way.
At Snowline, neither patient nor family will ever receive a bill for services.
We serve the western slope of El Dorado County and the Greater Sacramento Region: including Sacramento, Folsom, Roseville, Granite Bay, Fair Oaks, Carmichael and Rancho Cordova.
We had visits from other Hospices at the skilled nursing home, but we decided on Snowline. I had no idea at the time how helpful you could be. The care Snowline provided was way beyond anything expected.
Now that Margie is in another place, I have a new life to organize, and will call to arrange grief counseling. I’m so sad, but Snowline has helped me through the most stressful part of my life.
