Mill View hits the books for World Read Aloud Day

February 27th 2017

Mill View hit the books recently when it took part in this year’s World Read Aloud Day.

Residents from Mill View visited East Grinstead Library where they enjoyed an interactive reading session.

The team also invited the local community to join residents for the day, and enjoyed an exclusive screening of a short film created by Care UK featuring international Storyteller Laureate, Taffy Thomas MBE.

In the film, Taffy, the patron of The Society for Storytelling, provided his top tips and advice for reading and explained the therapeutic benefits of reading aloud to older people.

Customer relations manager, Amy Pepperrell, explained why Mill View was one of several Care UK care homes that took part in World Read Aloud Day: “It may come as a surprise to many just how beneficial reading aloud can be for older people; particularly those living with dementia. Here at Mill View interactive reading sessions are very important to us as they help us to engage residents and encourage communication.”

Mill View care home in West Sussex offers everything you’d expect from a care home, and much more – from a coffee shop to a cinema, a shop and a beauty salon. Everyone also likes to get out and about whenever they can, with trips exploring the beautiful countryside, seaside and historic attractions closeby.
