Fun Reads for the Elderly on Book Lovers Day

Book Lovers Day is coming up in just a few weeks and the best way for seniors and Windermere senior care providers to celebrate this holiday is by finding a new book to read. Reading can be a very rewarding hobby for the elderly because it helps keep their minds active while boosting their emotional wellbeing. Even if your senior loved one’s sight is not the best, there are still plenty of excellent large-print options available. Here are a few books that will be particularly interesting to seniors who want something to read for Book Lovers Day.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

When 65-year-old Harold Fry learns that an old work colleague is in hospice while fighting cancer, he decides to pay her a visit. Instead of a typical travel method, Harold chooses to walk the 627 miles on foot to meet up with the woman who used to mean so much to him.

All Passion Spent by Vita Sackville-West

This novel has been a classic since it was first published in 1931. It tells the remarkable story of 88-year-old Lady Slane. After her husband’s death, she decides to find herself again by searching for new experiences and learning more about herself.

Sunny Side Up by Eileen Comstock

This collection of memoirs examines the experiences of multiple families growing up during the Great Depression. In particular, it takes a good look at the more optimistic side of the people who managed to flourish during this time of economic turmoil.

Deaf Sentence by David Lodge

This humorous story about a professor with a hearing impairment may be particularly appealing to seniors who are also struggling with this health issue. Professor Desmond Bates loved to study language, yet he ends up going on a zany adventure after his hearing loss forces him to retire.
