Are you or someone in your family living with Dementia? Or do you work with people living with Dementia? ACH Group has been awarded funding from Dementia Australia to develop dementia friendly swimming experiences and environments.

The project will include the development of fact sheets for swimming pool venues, swimming coaches, people living with dementia and their families.

We are currently seeking the input of people with dementia and their families, as well as people who work with people with dementia in a paid or volunteer role, and people who work at swimming pool venues. We want to hear all about your experiences of swimming and dementia. You can contribute to the project by taking the online survey or contact the project coordinator to arrange a face to face interview.

TAKE the ONLINE SURVEY *

*The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
