 ALIVE specialist day support provides day activities  for  young individuals with learning disabilities and complex  health needs at an affordable cost . We are a charity and all our trustees are volunteers   so any money raised is used  purely for the benefit of our service users . We have a hydrotherapy pool and hoist   and  changing rooms however  we need to replace the floor around our pool to ensure it is safe and non slip . We would also like to put in showers so that  after using the pool our service users can  have a shower  this  is beneficial to their  health as leaving chlorine on their skin can cause skinreactions  also it is beneficial to families as   if their loved one has a shower it is one less care  activity they have to perform that day .  Hydrotherapy is immensely beneficial  allowing  exersice for people who are wheelchair bound in the higher temperatures  of a  hydropool it relaxes  tight muscles and relieves soreness and pain  but also the whole experience is  a sensory  experience with the jets , warmth lights and music . However  we have found by not having an area to shower afterwards  is limiting the number of service users  who would otherwise   use and benefit from the facility .
