One of the most popular rooms in our home has always been our tranquil and peaceful library. This wonderfully comfortable space is the ideal location to relax and read a favourite book or get lost in a new one. We actively encourage all residents to take advantage of the space provided to them, from enjoying the thrill of getting lost in a well-written book to stress reduction and improved sleep and increasing memory circuits; there are benefits to be enjoyed by all.

Reading aloud or in a group helps individuals to engage their imaginations while also providing topics of conversation for fellow residents and even family members to join in on. From reading periodicals to enjoying a quiet tabletop game with a fellow resident, our library is the perfect place to unwind and relax.

The Benefits of Reading

We encourage our residents to see our library as a place they can visit to enjoy a moment of escapism. Reading can make an enormous difference when it comes to improving mental health, socialisation skills and continuing to live an independent lifestyle; our staff actively encourage all of our residents to visit our library regularly. From reducing stress, to enhancing the memory through to even improving sleep, the act of reading comes with a whole host of benefits. Simply reading for pleasure has a wonderful impact upon the wellbeing of our residents and so our library will always be an inviting and welcoming space.
