Stack of Books with Statue Heads


One of the top facilities in our home for residents is our library. It is an area full of comfort and bliss, from the second residents walk in until the moment they leave. Residents can come to the library to either read a new book or find an old favourite to indulge in. The benefits of our library are endless, another reason why it is a common favourite amongst our residents.

Giving residents the opportunity to live their life with freedom and choice ensures that we keep their well-being our top priority with our person-focused care approach. Reading in a group or individually will both have a positive impact on their development and health which is important to us at Woodlands.

The Benefits of Library Visits

The natural benefits that relaxing and reading a book can bring are huge, and we encourage our residents to reap these benefits which come alongside this activity. Some benefits can include an increase in mental health, removing stress, an increase of sleep and increasing memory capacity. Reading in a group can give the same benefits, as well as developing speech and communication skills with others. There really isn’t anything to not enjoy at our beautiful library.

Our library is a designated relaxation space for residents and we have tastefully designed the area to support this. All books are easily accessible with ample room for residents to read their favourite picks. We have a plethora of genres to choose from so that each of our residents has something that they will enjoy reading. We have spaces for small groups to sit if residents wish to relax with company. We update our bookshelves on a regular basis so nobody ever gets bored or runs out of choices.
