Library

Our peaceful library is one of the most popular areas in our home. This space has been designed to provide residents the opportunity to relax while reading a favourite book or getting lost in a new one. We encourage all residents to use the library and enjoy the benefits it brings, from alleviating stress, to improved sleep and even increased memory circuits.

Reading, either alone or in a group, allows people to use their imaginations while also providing conversation subjects; it is an environment where residents can spend time alone or with a fellow resident. Beechgrove has been designed to allow all of our residents to live their life their way.

Positive Effects of Reading

We encourage residents to read and make the most of the library due to the plethora of positive benefits that it naturally offers. Studies have shown reading to have the capability to boost mental health, communication skills and the ability to use one’s imagination. Reading is an encouraged activity for decreasing stress, enhancing memory and even improving sleep habits. Simply reading for enjoyment will lift our residents’ spirits, ensuring that our library remains a welcoming environment.

Time to Read & Relax

Our library aims to appeal to as many residents as possible, by providing classic books such as “Pride and Prejudice” as well table-top games. No matter what genre a resident prefers, our library shelves are guaranteed to contain something to pique their interest. The library’s book collection is updated on a regular basis, ensuring that even our most regular visitors will never run out of fresh material to enjoy. With his cosy and comfortable Chesterfield chairs, our library is the ideal space to settle down and read and relax.
