The Delta Rehabilitation Center, also known locally
as the Snohomish Chalet, is home to about 150 people who struggle
every day to overcome the devastation caused by severe brain injury. The motto at the Chalet is "Living Life!" and the mission of every staff member is to help the residents
live life to the fullest. What are the ingredients to life?
Laughter, Song, Celebrations, Animals, Festivals, Humor, Education,
Sharing, Friendship, Health, Camping, The Stars, Art, Games, Grief,
Hope, Food, Accomplishment, Love, and More.
When walking the halls of the Chalet, it's surprising
how many times the eye catches a smile, the ear catches laughter.
The Chalet is a very special place with a 1000 stories of hope and
hilarity and, yes, some heartache. Just like life.
Residents here at Delta enjoy
camping, movies, Mariner games, fairs, festivals, motorbike
displays, the Hard Knocks Cafe for dining and movies, live music,
auctions and more. Delta is set in a country atmosphere on 22 acres
complete with lamas and very special outer space club with it's own
observatory. As time passes, we will be telling
you some more of those stories and we hope
you'll come back and visit us again. We'll also be collecting
and providing some special resources of particular use to those
already hard at work in the TBI field.
