NEW Dementia Friendly Swimming

We are pleased to announce that Dementia Friendly sessions are taking place at Waterside Farm Leisure Centre every Wednesday from Wednesday 27th February 2019.

These will include Dementia Friendly Swimming Sessions and A Dementia Friendly Seated Exercise Programme.

These sessions are designed to enhance the experiences of those living with dementia and to remove the barriers in exercise and encourage more individuals to take part.

The sessions will include qualified instructors as well as an assistant to aid any individual who required additional support.

Alongside these sessions there will be staff on hand from Dementia Friends to give support and advice to those who are caring for someone living with dementia.

There will also be a Yoga For Confidence session offered to those who are caring for their loved one or client during the session times for them to take some time for themselves whilst their loved one or client is attending their own session.

We are looking forward to supporting more individuals within our community who are living with or who are caring for individuals living with dementia.
