OAD's Concerns on Brookdale Assisted Living Program for the Deaf

Hey Deaf Senior Citizens, be sure to watch this is mostly about Brookdale Assisted Living Program for the Deaf in Oregon!   Many thanks to Chad Ludwig, President of Oregon Association of the Deaf (OAD) who will take care of issues on this program.  Hope the problems will be solved soon!

Click the picture above to open and watch the video

Copied from Deaf Nation News:

Joel Barish and Chad Ludwig, the president of Oregon Association of the Deaf, sits in this video. Chad shares some of his and OAD’s concerns and activities up to now, as well as OAD’s plans for the next 5 years. Concerns vary but a major issue is on Brookdale’s assisted living facility. Brookdale is only one of two assisted living programs for the Deaf in the United States, so OAD is committed to solve Brookdale issues. Learn more about this, and other OAD activities, in the video!

Hello Marty and Doc! Welcome Back to the Future Day! (Pah! It's Here At Last!)

What is Back to the Future Day – October 21 2015?

It's here at last. Back to the Future Day. The date that Marty McFly and Dr Emmett “Doc” Brown chose to travel forward in time from 1985 in the hit sequel Back To The Future II.

"We're descending toward Hill Valley, California, at 4:29 pm, on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015."

According to the time-bending 1980s sci-fi flick, by October 21 2015, we would be living in a world of hoverboards, flying cars and self-tying shoelaces. And now that the day has actually arrived.



NOTE: Don't we remember this "Back to the Future" movie way back in 1985? Awesome movie!

This conference, which is set to take place in sunny Houston, TX, presently has close to 400 participants registered, with numbers steadily growing.

Online hotel reservations are now being accepted at the conference hotel, Westin Galleria, as the conference headquarters.

The committees are busy planning a week full of activities, which will include sight-seeing tours, golf tournament and deep sea fishing on Monday and Tuesday! The tentative conference schedule is now available on our website. Be sure to check the website often for updates and further conference details!

Canada's Old Club's New Name: Ottawa Deaf Seniors

The Executive Board is very happy to announce that a new club name, Ottawa Deaf Seniors (ODS) is officially launched as of January 1, 2015. Last September (2014), at the general meeting, a big majority was in favour of the name change. 

Ottawa Deaf Golden Age Club was founded in 1988 and was originally a small card club. Thanks to positive feedback and comments, the membership is still growing along with various new activities. This club is well recognized across the province as Ottawa's Deaf seniors organization. The ODGAC itself is not known by many though it is the same club. So, evidently, Ottawa Deaf Seniors is a best-suited name.

95 Deaf Senior Citizens Touring in Morganton, NC!

Ninety-five seniors from the Deaf Seniors of America visited Morganton on Wednesday to tour the Alder Springs Deaf and Blind Community. (August 26, 2015) 

Deaf and blind seniors gather at Morganton retirement community

Deaf and blind seniors from across the country converged on Morganton Wednesday to check out what the Alder Springs Deaf and Blind Community will offer.

The tour of the apartments, still under construction, came as part of the Deaf Seniors of America Conference, going on in Asheville from Sunday through Thursday. Ninety-five visitors made their way through town on the new trolley recently purchased by the Burke County Tourism Development Authority.

Some residents, such as Judy Williams, 67, of Connecticut, already have reserved units at the retirement community.

“I love to hike,” Williams said through an interpreter. “The first place I thought about moving to was Florida, to St. Augustine. But where do you hike in St. Augustine? It’s too hot and it’s flat. So I thought about it for a while, and I found this place.”
