Supporting side-by-side dementia service

Teaming up with charity at our Essex centres

We're thrilled to host a New Side by Side Community Dementia service being delivered at various sites. 

Side by Side is a service that has been developed to help those living with dementia to continue doing what they love while also encouraging them to try new things. They will have the opportunity to meet up with a dedicated and specially trained colleague who will work with them within the centres, whether it be in the gym, swimming, badminton or even just for a friendly chat in one of the centre cafés. 

A diagnosis of dementia can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation, and this can worsen as the condition progresses. This will be a safe and welcoming way for individuals to continue to get out and about in their community. 

The following centres are hosting this special service include Epping Sports Centre, Fairfield Leisure Centre, Loughton Leisure Centre, Ongar Leisure Centre, and Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre.
