Library at the fleet care home


Our library is the ideal space for residents to relax and get lost in their favourite book or discover a new one. We encourage all residents to make the most of our well loved library, and to enjoy the various benefits it provides, from the thrill of getting lost in a well-written book, to stress reduction and improved sleep, as well as it’s positive impacts upon memory.

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. The library is a safe space for residents to utilise alone, as well as take advantage of the many social aspects it brings.
