DAY CENTRE MENU
The Centre has a fully accessible hydrotherapy pool which is equipped with overhead tracking hoists and situated in a Scandinavian log cabin with an ambient temperature of 32 degrees.
Members use the pool regularly and it provides an excellent base for exercise, providing a relaxing and fun environment for movement. The water’s warm temperature decreases muscle spasm, relieves pain and can increase range of movement. Each member undertakes a hydrotherapy risk assessment to determine the level of support they need.
The hydrotherapy pool is also available for hire and enquiries regarding bookings can be made by contacting the centre’s office.
The Centre’s an exercise room contains walking and balance aids, dumb bells and equipment for upper body exercise, including machines specifically designed for the fitness needs of wheelchair users.
The wheelchair accessible greenhouse donated in memory of the Foundation’s former company secretary, Mary Hodgson, provides opportunities for members to take part in gardening sessions and to watch their plants grow.
The Centre’s secluded rear area provides a quiet venue for the ever popular annual summer barbeque.
