Do you know someone who would like dementia friendly swimming sessions?

Enhancing the lives of people living with dementia and their carers

Fusion Lifestyle and Braintree District Council are working together. The goal is to deliver dementia friendly swimming at Witham Leisure Centre.

This means that people with dementia can swim any Thursday, between 1 and 2pm. At this time the pool will be a little bit quieter and they can receive help and support if they need it.

The sessions offer support for people living with dementia and their carers. Our Dementia Friendly swimming sessions allow you to continue doing something you love, or even give you the chance to try something new, in a safe and supportive environment.

If you know someone who is interested they can just turn up – £2.20 per session.

When: Thursdays at 1-2pm.

Where: Witham Leisure Centre, Spinks Lane, Witham, Essex CM8 1EP.

This programme is developed in partnership with an Occupational Therapist & Learning Disability Health Specialist.
