Dementia isn’t a barrier

Just because you live with an illness, it shouldn’t stop you doing the things you enjoy doing.

Three residents from Hollie Hill Care Home in Stanley, regularly take part in a dementia friendly swimming group at their local pool.

Jackie Coulson, Home Manager, said: “The residents have come on leaps and bounds after taking part in these swimming sessions. One of the gentleman has even joined the gym and has a personal trainer to help him progress with his goals. Whilst tone of our ladies who has lots of fun and enjoys swimming independently. I know our Personal Activities Leader Marj, who accompanies the residents on these trips is like a proud mum, as she watches them grow in confidence. This just goes to show, dementia isn’t a barrier and shouldn’t stop you doing what you want to do.”
