Nothing beats a good book. Books can take us places we have never been, help us relive another time, and take us on great adventures – all without ever leaving home. Stimulating conversations across generations, bringing people of all walks of life together, books and the discussion surrounding them are powerful tools in improving the quality of life for anyone. Maybe that’s why book clubs are popping up at senior living communities all over the country. Or maybe it’s because reading has been linked to reduced stress, increased mental stimulation, and even improved memory. Whatever the reason, there’s no doubt that reading is a popular pastime among people of all ages – and especially seniors.
