About Chestnut Lane Assisted Living for the Deaf
Chestnut Lane in Gresham, Oregon is a community specializing in active retirement living and assisted living for the deaf. Our staff are committed to helping maintain each resident’s independence while giving them the kind of compassionate, understanding, respectful care that they would give their own loved ones. Many of the staff members are also deaf, making communication easy. One of only a few communities catering to the deaf and deaf/blind in the country, Chestnut Lane is also perfectly situated near beautiful, bustling Portland. The MAX light rail system, which traverses the greater Portland area, is within walking distance of the community. The community is designed to help fulfill the needs of its residents, with spacious, open areas that allow residents to sign across the room and wide hallways with alcoves for private conversations. The video phone room allows residents with visibility to keep in touch with their loved ones. Residents can surf the web in the computer room, enjoy a good book in the library, catch a film in the TV/Theatre room, or lounge by the fireplace in the lobby. Exercise classes, arts and crafts, Bingo games, gardening, educational opportunities, movies, and scheduled outings keep everyone active and having fun. Church services are held onsite for those who worship. With a 24 hour emergency response call system, Chestnut Lane residents and their families can have peace of mind. Chestnut Lane works with local hospitals and doctors who understand the needs of their deaf residents. Scheduled transportation is available for activities, shopping, and medical appointments.
