HKNC Confident Living Program


I am pleased to let you know we are now accepting applications for our May and October 2019 Confident Living Programs (CLP) for Senior Adults 55 and “better” who have combined vision and hearing loss. It would be wonderful to work with individuals from your state that are struggling to communicate with family, friends, or others because of their reduced ability to receive and express visual and environmental information.

Participants receive information and exposure to techniques and technologies that provide hope and options as well as to help them remain independent in their homes. They are motivated to move forward with their lives and to cope with the dual sensory loss in a positive way.

The Confident Living Program will be conducted at the Helen Keller National Center in Sands Point, NY. The cost for 5-day program is $1,350.00. Program dates are May 20-24, 2019 or October 21-25, 2019. A poster outlining the program content and contact information is attached. Please pass the information along to your staff and providers of the Older Blind Program as well as to your colleagues.

You may obtain an application from your HKNC Representative or Mark Armstrong, Senior Adult Program Specialist. To contact HKNC’s Admission's Coordinator directly, please contact Dora Carney at or 516-944-8900 Ext. 258.

Thank you for considering the Confident Living Program as an option for your seniors with combined vision and hearing loss! You will receive a CLP Poster via email. In the event you do not receive it, please contact me to update my records. HKNC looks forward to hearing from you and to working with seniors in your state!
