Our day......

At The One Heart Wholeness Centre we offer a range of therapeutic activities to children living with a variety of profound disabilities ranging from hydrocephalus to cerebral palsy and autism. Our children are aged between 3 years old and 18 years old. The children are escorted into the centre by bus where they are given a healthy breakfast,  a shower and a change of clothes, after enjoying  a full body massage. After lunch the children are separated into 4 small groups and are supported to participate in a choice of therapies including physiotherapy, music therapy, water therapy and relaxation sessions in the sensory room. Once their afternoon activity is over the children are given a snack and made ready to be escorted home. All of the children are non verbal,  doubly incontinent and unable to walk. The staff team sets individual Aims & Objectives for each child which the staff team then work towards during each therapeutic session. Our aim is for the children to be the best that they can be and live their best lives.
