DAY CENTRE
Facilities

Hydrotherapy pool

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.

The hydrotherapy pool is also available for hire and enquiries regarding bookings can be made by contacting the centre’s office.
