Swimming for people with (starting) dementia

Exercising in warm water is good for blood circulation in the brain. It also gives a feeling of well-being. That is why De Meerkamp has special classes for people with (starting) dementia. In the extra heated water bath, they receive various exercises under professional supervision that promote coordination and balance. The presence of a supervisor is mandatory during the lesson. The supervisor may participate in the water, but may also watch the lesson on the terrace. Participants are free to participate in exercises, but can also go their own way. The pool is 1.25 meters deep so everyone can stand. Disabled people can use the hoist.
