Swim in a safe and supportive environment

Dementia friendly swimming at Ripley Leisure Centre

Join us for a swim in a safe and supportive environment

A diagnosis of dementia doesn't mean you have to stop taking part in activities you enjoy. Swimming is a great all-round activity that is beneficial to everyone. It is particularly beneficial for people living with dementia as the sensation of being in water can provide a calming and soothing effect.

A Team Member is present on poolside at all times and Carers can swim for free, if you wanted someone that you know in the pool with you. After the swim, there is time for tea, coffee and a chat. 

No need to book in, just turn up. If you've never been to our site before we can offer you a tour of our facilities with a Team Member. 

Price £3.00, Carers free of charge.

Join us at Ripley Leisure Centre every Wednesday at 2:30pm - 3:30pm. For more information, don't hesitate to call us on 01773 514727.
