Celia’s House is the only nonprofit hospice providing end-of-life residential care for individuals in the Rogue Valley. The 12-room facility, which also allows family members to stay during their loved ones’ final days, is operated by Southern Oregon Friends of Hospice in Medford. Last month, the nonprofit received a grant from the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute to conduct interviews in Spanish with Latinx cancer patients to identify ways to better engage this community with discussions around palliative and end-of-life care. Dwight Wilson is the executive director of Southern Oregon Friends of Hospice and Celia’s House. Delia Hernandez is a board member of Southern Oregon Friends of Hospice and a health outreach specialist with La Clinica, a non-profit medical and dental clinic in Medford. They join us to talk about how they will use the grant and how to overcome the taboo around talking about death.
