“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
― Mark Twain
One of the best ways to prevent some of the side-effects of aging is to remain mentally engaged and active. And one of the best activities to help maintain an active and healthy mind is reading! There are books for every interest— find a topic that interests your senior loved-one and see what's out there. Better yet, find a book that you'd both enjoy and discuss your reading experiences together! The librarian at your local public library is a great resource, as well. They can direct you to large-print books (should you or your loved-one have a visual impairment), books-on-tape (which can be fun on a leisurely afternoon!), and titles that you might find interesting. Plus, public libraries are free— so for seniors on a budget this is a definite plus!
