Home manager Maureen Barrett said: “Reading poems, or being read to, can have many therapeutic benefits, especially for older people, including increasing social interaction, inspiring creativity and reducing anxiety.
“Poetry can even stimulate memories, encouraging reminiscence, which is incredibly beneficial for older people, particularly those living with dementia. We are really looking forward to hosting our National Poetry Day event, and hope the local community will join us for a day of rhyming fun.”
