Dementia Care

Snowline Dementia Connection

Snowline’s Dementia Connection aims to improve the early detection of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders (dementia) with our community partners. We also provide education on disease trajectory, determine immediate needs and improve the quality of life for both the person with dementia and their care partners.

Request for Support

Snowline Dementia Connection supports people with dementia and their families with many dimensions of dementia care:

  • Educational Programs: Living Well with Dementia and Dementia Behavioral Symptom Management.
  • Care partner support groups
  • Home visits, needs assessments, care coordination
  • Respite grants
  • Hospital to home transition assistance
  • Referral coordination with community resources
  • Without a dementia diagnosis all supports are towards referring individuals for appropriate diagnostic medical visits.
  • Specialized programs are available for people who live alone, are recently diagnosed, or who have intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD).
  • Providing hospital to home transition support in partnership with Marshall Hospital.
  • Providing community education to equip El Dorado County social services, faith communities, businesses and medical offices with quality dementia education
