Create a community which understands and transforms the dying process into a time of opportunity for meaningful closure, supporting each dying person, their loved ones, and the dedicated caregivers who serve them.
The story of what makes Southern Oregon Friends of Hospice and Celia’s House so special and unique is about a small group of people from our local community. Beginning in 2008 they shared a dream of helping to bring end-of life comfort and peace to those unable to do so in their own homes. By 2018, they purchased and transformed an iconic old house into a 12-room model of true excellence in end-of-life care, serving our entire region.
Throughout the day at Celia’s House, there are profound moments between caregivers, staff and residents.The power in these interactions allow a resident to feel seen and cared for, and a caregiver to experience the gratification of providing comfort, kindness and connection.
Fulfilling the Mission
Celia’s House in Holmes Park opened in April of 2018 and as of January of 2022, has served over 380 people from diverse backgrounds and income levels. Over half of our beds are subsidized so the entire community has access to dignified, quality end-of-life care.
