A bit about the charity Wired:
Wired is the ONLY rehabilitation Centre in the Community of Cornwall that offers conventional therapies and art and craft workshops to people who have suffered from a stroke or acquired brain injury (ABI) as well as long term neurological conditions.
We offer patients Physiotherapy, Psychological therapy, Specialist Massage therapy, acupuncture, music workshops and re-learning to read and write or speak again, additionally art, mosaic glass, craft making; for example cards, painting, drawing and jewellery making. This gives the “hidden” therapeutic value of hand and eye co-ordination and dexterity whilst at the same time socialising the workshop. Outings in the Community mean that patients are able to re-integrate into the Community as well as providing Carer support and respite. We have just finished creating a garden in 2012 that is fully disability accessible and has a sensory element as well as growing herbs, flowers and can be also used as a retreat. This provides a really valuable therapy, working with plants and planning out the garden and eventually we hope to set aside a section as a memorial garden, for patients who have sadly passed on through their condition.
