A weekly group for people with dementia (or significant cognitive impairment) and/or their family carers, to enjoy swimming and the relaxing sensory effects of water, in a small, safe, friendly environment.
We have the whole pool to ourselves! There's a slope for easy access into the pool and you can touch the bottom even in the deep end. You can free swim if you wish, but no swimming ability is necessary. There's plenty of assistance from members of our team - to ensure you feel comfortable throughout - and of course a professional lifeguard on hand at all times.
You can just turn up – there’s no need to pre-book or any commitment to come each week. If preferred, people with dementia or carers are also welcome to watch from the seating area - supervised by a member of our team.
From 12pm - after Swimming - we usually walk across to Kempston Park Indoor Bowls Club opposite, to relax and socialise over tea/coffee or light lunch together
