Residents and their families say…
“Though I am sure most folks would love to have their health or youth and live within their own terms, I can honestly say the New England Homes for the Deaf was the next best thing for my father…He became friends with many of the staff and also had some friends there that he went to school with…I have been to many other facilities… and NEHD Exceeded all of the others… I wish to thank you all at the home for the love and care given to my father…each and every one of you have become a part of a life’s journey, at a time when there was so much anxiety and stress, you must know that to leave a loved one in good and loving hands was a tremendous comfort to our family. You all play a huge part in not only the care of the patients, but the lives of the family…. All of you at the home had our full and undoubted trust.”

Thank you so very much for all you have done to help get my sister… settled at NEHD. She is so very happy with the move. Her family is too! The staff at NEHD is stellar and it is obvious how sincerely you all care for the residents. I will be ever grateful for the careful preparation in helping me get her thru the move. Looking forward to visits in the future,
“I am so grateful to the New England Home for the Deaf (NEHD) for the care they gave my deaf relative. He was locked in a world of silence most of his life and when he was finally able to move into NEHD it was like a breath of fresh air. During his final days the social worker made sure that we were able to talk with him even though the facility was on lockdown due to Covid-19. The nursing staff, managers and social worker, Rachel were absolutely amazing! They went out of their way to make sure I knew exactly what was happening and that his final moments were peaceful. I will be eternally grateful for the terrific communication and care he received at the end. Thank you to each one of the staff who are putting themselves on the line every day to ensure that these vulnerable people have the care that they need. Being deaf is hard in the best of circumstances, but being deaf during a pandemic has a unique set of challenges. I’m thankful that NEHD has the compassion and skill necessary to navigate these turbulent times.”

My entire family are so grateful for the love, care and fun times my dad experienced at New England Homes for the Deaf, his home.
His life was so enriched by everyone there. You all made him so happy! Thank you!
