tmactive150 Dementia-friendly Sessions

 

Dementia-friendly Multi-Sport Session @ Angel Centre

Our Multi-Sport Session takes place at the Angel Centre on the first and third Friday of the month from 2pm to 3.30pm. Sports on offer include golf putting, boccia, cycling on a static bike and table tennis. The instructor begins each session with a warm up and finishes with a stretch.

Regular exercise can bring benefits to those in the early to middle stages of dementia. It can improve physical fitness and cognition, and improve the ability to dress, clean, cook or perform other daily activities. Come and join us to increase your levels of physical activity or sustain them.

This friendly and supportive session costs £4 and carers go free.  Please contact suzy.abbott@tmactive.co.uk for more information or speak to the reception at the Angel Centre on 01732 359966.


Dementia-friendly Swimming @ Tonbridge Swimming Pool

Come and join our Dementia-friendly Swimming Session at Tonbridge Swimming Pool each Friday between 12.15pm and 1.15pm. We have a Dementia Friend available throughout the public swim session to guide participants to the changing rooms, meet them on poolside and to suggest activities for participants to try in the water.

Research shows that low impact exercise can be beneficial for physical and mental health and can improve the quality of life for people in all stages of dementia. Swimming in particular has the added benefits of reducing anxiety, improving mood and enhancing psychological wellbeing. Swim England’s Dementia Friendly Swimming Hub details the benefits further:

  • Pain reduction, better balance, an increase in functional capacity and fitness.
  • Improved confidence and ability to concentrate.
  • Improved water confidence, swimming ability and physical activity levels.
  • For carers, the opportunity to socialise with other carers, share experiences and springboard to other social opportunities.

The session costs £3.10 and carers go free. Participants will receive a FREE centre membership when they register at Reception for their first session.
