Who do we support
The sessions provide a great opportunity to do something active together, so we welcome carers to participate - and to do so for free! However, carers are not necessarily required to accompany the participant in the water, and there may be the chance to sit poolside or in our spectator area. Contact us to discuss how we can support those wishing to attend this session.
The Dementia Friendly Swimming sessions give people in Bridgend County Borough who are living with dementia an opportunity to keep active and to meet and socialise with others in a similar situation. So, socialising after the sessions is also important. There will be an opportunity to sit down and have a complimentary cup of tea and a snack. It’s great to see people who previously didn't come out of their homes being part of the sessions and be given a sense of place.
