Epilogue Foundation

End-of-Life Guesthouse + Education

Everyone has an end-of-life story

Have you lost someone you love?

What do you remember about the final days and weeks you had with them?

If you could go back in time, what would you change? What would you do the same?

Maybe you wish you knew what to say when you noticed the apprehensive look in their eyes?

Maybe you wish that everyone else had the joy of peacefully saying goodbye, like you did?

Maybe you wish you could bring their fur babies to them when they were dying away from their home?

Many of us share similar feelings about the final days with our loved ones.


Why Epilogue Foundation?

Epilogue Foundation was born to learn from the unmet wishes and enhance the joys of the end-of-life experience.

Guesthouse: Imagine a charming bed & breakfast where we take the everyday busyness off your plate, so that you and your loved ones can focus on what really matters.

We’re working together to create an end-of-life guesthouse for Portland, Oregon. Our guesthouse will provide round-the-clock personal care by experienced caregivers and support for our guests and their loved ones.

All of our guests will use a Medicare-certified hospice provider of their choice. The hospice team will visit our guests and offer pain management and other medical care, and (if desired) spiritual support, counseling, and education.

Education: We’re also building an education program to help members of the Portland community deal with end-of-life care questions like:

    • What’s going to happen to me?
    • Is my Mom suffering?
    • How do I make the best care decisions?

We are a grass-roots volunteer organization looking for caring community members to join in the work. Administrative, accounting, architectural, fundraising, legal, video making/editing, and commercial real estate experience would be especially appreciated!
