Senior Resources



A joint project of National Association of the Deaf and Deaf Seniors of America

At the 2007 DSA Conference in Orlando, FL, this first-ever ‘Senior Resources’ listing was announced as a joint DSA-NAD project with the involvement of the NAD Senior Citizens Section (NAD SCS).

We are grateful to Amanda Boxer, daughter of Woody & Mary Sue Boxer of Maryland, who volunteered at NAD during the summer of 2007 to do initial data-gathering for this listing. In addition, we are grateful to Joanne Williams of Nevada; this directory is also the result of her early efforts with NAD SCS. Thank you, Amanda and Joanne!

If you wish to add a senior housing facility or social club to this listing or if you wish to make corrections, please go to www.nad.org/contact (be sure to mention ‘Senior Resources’). Updates will be posted on a periodic basis.
