An Interview with Doris Galen, Resident at The Kensington:

 

Older adults who read often enjoy much more than just a good novel. Several studies including recent research published in the Journal of Science has shown that that there are many benefits to seniors including: overcoming stress, enhancing brain function and memory, sharpening decision-making skills and possibly delaying the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease through mental stimulation. These benefits reveal why good senior reading habits help preserve mental abilities, enabling people to live independently longer.
