Therapeutic exercise classes are designed and supervised to show people how to move safely and gradually rebuild strength and flexibility without pain. Exercising in the pool adds the advantage of reducing the effects of gravity and weight on joints so they can move more easily through a greater range of motion. More movement leads to increased strength, decreased pain and improved joint stability which make life back on solid ground easier.
Wheelchairs, walkers and assistance are available if needed to ensure safe mobility on the deck. A chair lift and full sized staircase make it easy to access the pool. Staff and volunteers are available to assist people during program orientation and until they are comfortable participating independently.
Some assistance is available in the change rooms. However, if ongoing physical assistance with dressing, transfers or in the pool are required we will help people to make arrangements for a personal care worker.
