Dementia-friendly swimming in Salford

Salford Community Leisure provides dementia-friendly swimming sessions which are a great way to enhance the physical, emotional and social well-being of people living with dementia.

Promoting the health benefits of an active lifestyle whilst socialising with other people who live with dementia builds physical fitness and confidence in a safe and welcoming environment.

Each session is run by an experienced swimming instructor and carers are welcome to come along and participate. After each session, the group meets in the café for a brew and natter where stories are shared and bonds formed.
