Our Library


We proudly offer our residents a quiet safe space in our beautiful, purpose built library. Our tranquil library is the ideal location to relax and read a favourite book or get lost in a new one. We encourage all residents to make the most of the space and enjoy the benefits it brings.

Reading aloud or in a group helps individuals to engage their imaginations while also providing topics of conversation for fellow residents and even family members to join in on.

The Power of a Good Book

We appreciate and understand the power that reading can have, particularly reading in groups, in aiding residents to feel happier and more content, especially residents with Dementia. We invite friends and loved ones of our residents to visit us here at The Porterbrook Care Home, and enjoy reading together. Grandchildren and younger visitors are also most welcome to join us and read with or to their relatives.  Our library is more than just a room filled with books, it’s a place where residents can socialise, invite friends and loved ones to join them, participate in conversations, combat loneliness, and so much more.

Ignite Your Imagination

Reading a good book is great for mental and cognitive stimulation to help keep the brain active and engaged. Our library, which includes popular classics such as Jane Austin as well as more modern literature, aims to provide something for everyone; a well-written book can transport individuals to other realms and stimulate the imagination. Whatever genre our residents enjoy, we are confident that there will be something on the shelves to grab their attention; from crime and mystery, biographies, drama, poetry and travel books we’re confident that residents will find something that ignites their imagination.
