Did you know that reading is very important for us all, here are some of the benefits:
  • Studies have shown that staying mentally stimulated can slow the progress of Alzheimer’s and Dementia, since keeping your brain active and engaged prevents it from losing power.
  • No matter what might be causing us stress and anxiety it all just slips away when you lose yourself in a great story.
  • Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy.
  • In addition to the relaxation that accompanies reading a good book, it’s possible that the subject you read about can bring about immense inner peace and tranquility.
  • Reading spiritual texts can lower blood pressure and bring about an immense sense of calm, while reading self-help books has been shown to help people suffering from certain mood disorders and mild mental illnesses.

Within our library area we have comfortable settees for residents to relax and while away their time reading from the range of books on offer.  The library is next to our coffee shop making it easy to keep refreshed as you read.
