How To Get Back into Reading in Assisted Living

If you cannot recall the last time, you spent reading books, then, you are not alone. It is not an uncommon thing to happen since according to a report by the National Endowment for the Arts, the number of readers for pleasure has declined since 1982.

But the good thing is, there are plenty of ways to get back into reading. Read through and follow these easy steps to help you fall in love with reading again.

  • For starters, it is important to start reading a short book if you have not read it for a while. Find a short book that interests you whether it is romance, self-help book, thriller, or non-fiction, make sure to choose the one that will help you get back on track.
  • Second, set aside time for reading. Set a dedicated time to read each day at least 15 to 30 minutes to fit reading into your lifestyle again.
  • Find a reading buddy. Reading with a friend from assisted living or a family member can be a great way to love reading again. You and your reading buddy can choose a book together and discuss it as you go along.
  • Visit your local library for recommendations. Plus, your local library has a wide variety of books to choose from.
  • Create a comfortable reading environment to make sure you have a cozy place to sit and read away from distractions.
