Audiobook App Provides Caregiver Stress Relief

For caregivers, stress relief com an come in many forms. Going for a peaceful walk, doing yoga or taking a nice bath all provide much needed relief. But for caregivers on the go, stress relief could take another form. The Audible app allows caregivers to download audiobooks to listen to in order to relieve stress.

The Audible app requires a monthly membership in order to purchase books. However, caregivers can sign up for a free trial and receive 30 days for free on the platform.

Once caregivers sign up for a free trial, they will have a free credit in their account to purchase an audiobook. Caregivers can search for a specific book by title or author, or they can browse books by categories or in the featured section. Categories to browse include sci-fi & fantasy, romance, history, and business.

When users find a title they'd like to download, they can do so in the app and the free credit will be applied. Then, caregivers can find all of the books they've downloaded in the My Library section of the app. Books can be stored in the cloud, or they can be downloaded on the device for users to listen to. Caregivers can download books to listen to with their senior clients, too.

The Audible app is available for Apple and Android platforms. 

Senior caregivers, let us know your feedback on this app and keep us posted if you discover additional apps that assist with caregiving duties and help relieve caregiver stress. You may also refer-a-friend to a senior caregiving job and win prizes weekly and monthly on Caregiverlist.
