Making Connections: Resources for Individuals with Vision and Hearing Loss | Generations Home Care

It’s vital to develop a strong Connections to Care Program to local resources and community organizations that can also support our caregivers, clients, their family members, and our Continuum of Care partners.

“As part of our dedication to Connections to Care, Generations Home Care wants to share information about a resource within our community, the Talking Book Library, which might help improve the quality of life for many of our loved-ones, clients, and patients with vision and hearing loss.”

-Statement from CEO, Cathy Shiroda

The Talking Book Library

This organization provides audio books and braille delivery services for the visually impaired and physically limited throughout Arizona.

Just like a traditional library, all materials — including the player and headphones — are provided free of charge. The Talking Book Library also offers titles through the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) program that are not available in their physical collection. Patrons of the library can access both the physical collection and register for the BARD program. Service for individual patrons begins with an application for service by downloading the form from the library’s website.
