Pete Moore Hospice House
Pete Moore Hospice House
Lane County joins other Oregon metropolitan areas, like Portland, Salem, and Bend, in offering a hospice house to local residents. The vision for the Pete Moore Hospice House began with a community wide recognition of the need for compassionate care and a home-like environment for people to comfortably live out their final days.
The support and input of the medical community and other community members translated this vision into reality. The Pete Moore Hospice House offers a reprieve from the stresses that come from a life-limiting illness. Nature wraps patients and their families in a serene, home-like environment where they experience quality, compassionate end-of-life care.
What is a Hospice House?
A Hospice House is designed to provide hospital-level care for those on hospice in a home-like environment designed to meet the needs of both patients and their loved ones. The Pete Moore Hospice House provides both respite care and acute symptom management for those facing life-limiting illnesses. While these services are often provided in the home, a visit to a hospice house facility helps provide a higher level of comfort and pain management when caregivers are unable to control symptoms at home. By addressing the needs of both patients and caregivers during these critical times, we are able to preserve life’s dignity and serenity. Receiving comfort and compassion, while surrounded by those they love, helps individuals find meaning in the final phase of life. For those who don’t have family or someone to care for them, a hospice house setting is a desirable alternative in their final days to a nursing home or a traditional hospital.
About the House:
Set back at the end of a tree-lined drive, the beautiful Northwest craftsman-style 17,000 square foot facility resembles a family home. Every detail has been crafted to provide a peaceful and serene environment for patients and loved ones. The 14 individual patient rooms feature private en-suites, patios, and gas fireplaces, while providing enough space to accommodate family and overnight guests. A stunning great room, family room, dining room, and family kitchen provide a place for family and friends to gather and relax. The light-filled chapel offers a quiet retreat and a space for contemplation. The property’s peaceful gardens and walking paths provide views of the half acre pond and Coburg Hills. The Pete Moore Hospice House is located at 4010 County Farm Rd in Eugene, Oregon.
