Dementia friendly swimming

We offer a range of swimming sessions which have been developed to offer a safe and friendly swimming environment for people living with dementia in County Durham.

What is it and how can it help me?

We are working to improve the swimming experience of our community living with dementia in County Durham. If you are living with dementia or care for someone who does, come along and take part in one of our dementia friendly swimming sessions at Spennymoor leisure centres. 

We offer weekly supported swimming sessions which take place during public swimming times. Our aim is to help you have a safe, enjoyable and stress free visit. You'll be welcomed by our specially trained staff who are there to support you if you need it at reception, in the changing area and in the pool.

Where can I join a session? 

Spennymoor leisure centre

2.30pm - 3.30pm every Monday.

Contact Spennymoor Leisure Centre for more information.

All sessions cost £2.80 including refreshments and are free to carers supporting someone living with dementia. 

A diagnosis of dementia doesn't mean you have to stop taking part in activities you enjoy, so if you like swimming, even if you haven't been for years and are not sure if you can remember how, come along and give it a try. You can either turn up to the session or contact us first if you would like to have a chat about anything beforehand.
