Your care home, residential setting or nursing home can join Listening Books and all your residents can benefit from our audiobook service. Audiobooks are the perfect choice for residents who can no longer hold a book, have failing eyesight or just find themselves too tired to read. An audiobook can also be a comforting voice to listen to in their rooms, or can be a social activity if residents listen together. You could also try setting up a book group!
How does it work?
Choose the best option for you. You can borrow books:
Download or stream 1,000s of books from our website. We stock the classics, romance, naval history, adventure, bestsellers and much, much more. You can have five at a time for only £50 per year; that’s five audiobooks for five different residents and as soon as they have been listened to, you can return them and check out another book. There is no limit across the year, listen to as many books as you like!
Make a big list of CDs that you think your residents would like (or even leave the choosing up to us), then wait for them to arrive through the post. As soon as you are finished with a CD, send it back to us in the freepost envelope provided and we will send you another from your list. You can have four CDs at a time for only £75 for the whole year and there are no late fees. Swap them as much as you like throughout the year.
Borrow books using the OverDrive app or through your internet browser.
Audiobooks on MP3 CD delivered straight to your door.
Borrow books on all formats.
I would like to say that I am so happy with the listening books, it has certainly made my life so much better, as I have arthritis in my hands it’s difficult to hold a book for very long, and the choices are amazing. Thank you
