Buster Holloway, 82, held on tight to the railing as he lowered himself into the 3-foot whirlpool at Bishop Park in Bryant, with help from staff member Luke Neel.
"You are a lifeguard, right?" Holloway asked.
Holloway ventured into the water for the first time in more than 10 years but quickly gained confidence and moved to the 5-foot section of the pool. Before long, he was lunging through the water on his own, as Neel attempted to keep up.
"You swim like a fish," Neel said.

“First and foremost, we want to provide quality care,” said Nancy Brown, executive director of Southern Trace. “But we also want to promote independence and make sure the residents have choices and those choices are met.”
The Southern Trace staff aims to take out the institution element of nursing homes.
