Unite, Read & Relate

 Read aloud to older adults . For older adults who loved to read, listening to someone read to them can bring profound comfort and joy.

There are many different reasons why older adults may give up reading. Common barriers include poor vision, lack of strength to hold up a book, tremors, dementia, and other medical reasons. Losing the ability to read often leaves people feeling withdrawn, sad and isolated.

By reading aloud to an older adult, you can help improve the quality of their life. Improvements include:

·     Stimulate memories and creativity

·     Improve mood and concentration

·     Increase social interaction
