Creating dementia-friendly swimming experiences

Physical activity will become easier for people living with dementia, with access for tailored swimming classes in Adelaide. 

ACH Group in Adelaide is working with State Swim to create dementia-friendly swimming classes and resources to help get people living with dementia more connected with others, get active, and have some fun. 

This video, filmed at the early stage of the project’s development, explores some of the challenges people living with dementia and their families face when looking for activities which are healthy, active, safe and dementia-friendly.


Dementia Australia thanks everyone who participated in the filming of this video. Dementia Australia plans to visit the project in mid-2019 for an update on progress. This project was a recipient of a Dementia Australia Dementia Friendly Community Community Engagement Program Grant.
