I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My brother has resided at Chestnut Lane, a facility for the deaf and deaf-blind, since May of 2011 after our father passed away. My brother, who is deaf and also developmentally disabled, has taken to his new home. He enjoys talking to the staff and the residents. For the first time in his life, he is able to communicate (via sign language) with everyone he comes into contact with on a daily basis! He loves the food there and while his favorite "activity" is watching TV, he will take part in some of the activities and parties at Chestnut Lane. And when he does, he always has a good time!

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My deaf friend lost his father 2 years ago, with whom he has always lived. My deaf friend is in his late 50's and has never lived independently, and that has always been sad. There were only 2 places in the whole country at the time of his father's death, who were geared toward deaf residents. Chestnut Lane is in our same state, so we can visit regularly! My deaf friend now has his own apartment for the first time ever. He is much more independent, and joins in the activities at Chestnut Lane. I have seen a whole different side of him now that he lives there. He likes people, enjoys visitors, loves having his family come see him, is happier, more confident, and much more positive in his attitude. It is the perfect place for him and a Godsend. He can communicate with everyone there in sign language. I recommend it to any deaf person looking for a place to retire, even if you have some health issues. They will monitor your health for you too.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My brother who is deaf has resided at Chestnut Lane in Gresham, Oregon (a suburb of Portland) for the past two years ever since our father died. My brother has blossomed into a happier and more independent person since coming to live at Chestnut Lane. For the first time in his life he is living on his own in his own apartment. He now enjoys socializing (as he never has before) with the residents and the staff who all know sign language! He enjoys the food, the community and the weekly shopping trips to local stores. For the first time in his life he is using the community videophone to keep in touch with both deaf friends and hearing family members. Whenever I visit him, we take in a current captioned movie (using the latest technology) at any of the many local theaters. I enjoy sharing meals in the dining room and interacting with the other residents I've come to know. I am always welcome to participate in the activities offered to the residents. I see how the caring staff looks after him, often going above and beyond my expectations! I am so grateful that Chestnut Lane has been available for the past ten years for deaf and deaf-blind people to come to live. I don't know what we'd do without it! Thank you, Chestnut Lane! John
