  • We have been tremendously enjoying the stories! It is amazing - 90% of our families joining our day program would say that their loved one used to love to read but has stopped doing so. Once in our program, 90% of our day program participants take part in our book club. The format of your stories makes it possible. Thank you!

What is Hearthside Book Club®?

Hearthside Book Club® is the first digital book subscription service designed for persons with dementia. Each PDF book is specifically designed for older adults, including people with dementia. These books capitalize on the many remaining strengths of people with memory loss—specifically the ability to read and engage in discussion. A large print, downloadable PDF book is emailed to you weekly to be used in a group or one-on-one setting as an activity for people with dementia. Hearthside Book Club® was developed and tested in NIH-funded research.
