Residents enjoy splishing and splashing

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

Residents from Langley Park Care Home in Langley Park, dipped their toes in the water as they tried out a dementia friendly swimming session at Spennymore Pool.

Sharon Smith, Home Manager, said: “The swimming was a definite hit with the residents. Those who didn’t want to swim could just dip their toes in the water which was great. It looks like the residents will be making this visit to the pool a regular one. This just goes to show, dementia isn’t a barrier and shouldn’t stop you doing what you want to do.”
