Dementia Friendly Swimming

Dementia Friendly Swimming sessions are now taking place at Spennymoor Leisure Centre. These take place every Monday from 2.30-3.30pm.

 

As with all Dementia Friendly Swimming sessions, the first week is free and following sessions are charged at £2.60 for the person with dementia and free entrance for their carers. Support is available if required, at reception, in the changing room and in the pool. Free refreshments are offered afterward.

 

The difference between dementia friendly swimming at Spennymoor compared to other sites is the pool. It’s unique shape means that at its shallowest point it is only ankle deep and therefore is suitable for those who perhaps don’t want to swim but would like to paddle. The leisure centre also has a pool wheelchair meaning that even those with limited mobility can be wheeled in and can enjoy the water from the comfort of the chair.

 

 

Dementia Friendly Swimming sessions are also still being delivered at Chester-Le-Street Leisure Centre, Teesdale Leisure Centre in Barnard Castle and Freeman’s Quay Leisure Centre in Durham City. More information on these can be found at:
