Books can bring so much enjoyment to people’s lives, but with dementia reading can become difficult and can ultimately lead to a long-loved hobby feeling no longer possible.

Together we can restore the pleasure of reading. Calibre is an Audiobook library service allowing members to access an online library of over 9,500 high-quality unabridged Audiobooks. It is the perfect library service for people who are finding reading too difficult but who would love to continue both to enjoy their old favourites and to discover new tales and adventures through audio.

You can get a lifetime membership to Calibre with a specialist audio player for just £69.95.


The Audio Players

You have two players to choose from. Both have high quality sound and have an intelligent bookmarking system meaning the audio books will always start at the same spot where you last finished listening.

The Sovereign is the large player dimension: 23cm x 10cm

The Sonic is a mini light-weight player 15cm x 5cm. Perfect if you want to move it around a lot.

Both players have a rechargeable battery making it easily portable when you are listing, and no wires getting in the way!


Calibre Membership

Calibre can send you your Audiobooks on USB Memory Stick, to use with your Sovereign player. Their extensive library caters to all tastes from fiction and non-fiction genres to short stories and poetry. Whether you like the classics, thrillers, romance or war, there is something to suit all tastes and interests.

How does it work?

Once you purchase your Calibre membership through Unforgettable you will be asked to complete a short form so that Calibre can understand your reading preferences. This will cover which genres or categories you would like to receive.

Calibre will then send you your first Audiobook in a padded blue wallet. When you’ve finished the book you turn over the address label on the pouch and send it back (free of charge) and Calibre will then send you your next Audiobook.

You can borrow up to 4 titles at any one time and there is no fixed return date, meaning you can take as little or as long as you want to enjoy your book and never risk those overdue fines!

Calibre will send you titles that they think you will enjoy based on the genre selections you have made, but you can update your preferences at any time if you want to try something different!

*Please note that Calibre Audio Library is a registered charity providing a subscription free service to people who have difficulty reading printed books. This service is only available for people who have dementia, visual impairment and other disabilities/illnesses that make reading difficult.

    One major problem that has become apparent is the all yellow buttons! The buttons all look the same it is extremely difficult to differentiate between the various functions. The emblems on the fuction buttons cannot be clearly seen. The gloss on the buttons creates a shine making it even harder to see even by me and I have very good eye sight. My Wife however struggles and needs me to operate it as she is unable to tell the differnce between the buttons. Some what of a pointless product I am begining to think. As for the Audio books side of things we have receieved one so far. That was chosen for us off my Wifes likes and dislikes preferences. Not sure at this moment in time if we can order actual titles of books? The one Audio Book sent to date, unimpressed, is an understatement.

  • Very pleased!

    I like this product a lot, only criticism is that when using headphones the signs can become a bit muffled.
