A Closer Look
Sometimes, people at the end of their lives also find themselves at the end of their financial resources. After losing his job and health insurance due to fast-progressing dementia in his early 50’s, Tim Snelson was one of those people. Still in school, his daughters, Jaimee and Jenna, took care of their dad as long as they could. When they called Four Seasons, they had no way to pay for the hospice care he needed. However, because donors generously support the Angel Fund, Tim was able to receive the in-home hospice care he needed.
