The heated hydrotherapy pool at Chailey Heritage Foundation provides young people and their families the opportunity to have fun together whilst also allowing them to exercise and experience the sensation of water-supported movement, as well as practical swimming lessons. Experienced staff implement individual hydrotherapy programmes devised and supported by specialist physiotherapists. Sessions aim to help young people with disabilities to improve their core strength, posture and performance as well as taking part in an enjoyable, physical, leisure experience.
The pool is heated and maintained at a water temperature of 32-33°C. Access to the pool is via eight full body hoists, steps with railings, a ramp with railings and we also have a slide for a more exciting entrance! The deepest depth of the pool is 1.4m. There are 12 individual changing rooms, each with full body hoists. We also have black-out blinds on the windows, colour changing pool lighting, music, a bubble area and inflatables for use as per your needs.
