My 86 year old grandfather recently lost his vision because of macular degeneration. He is in perfect health otherwise. Until he lost his vision he would spend hours in his garden and loved to read and watch TV. I was thinking about getting him an ipod or other audio device so he can listen to audio books. Can anyone recommend a device I can get him to listen to audio books that he would be able to operate? I'd also like to hear other ideas for how to keep him active.
