Simon’s trip to Butlins

Last month Simon, who lives at Oakleigh in Dawlish, went on a very special break to Butlins – his first holiday in over 12 years!

Nichola Chandler, Registered Manager  at Oakleigh, explains: “Simon expressed an interest in taking a holiday in Butlins. He hasn’t been away for over 12 years, so we worked with him to plan his trip and support his holiday.”

After some meetings and assessments, Simon’s holiday was booked for the 8th February to the 11th February at Butlin’s Minehead for a special 80’s Weekend with his Support Workers, Jason and Calum.

Nichola adds:  “They left early doors and traveled by car to Minehead – Simon had an en-suite room with a double bed and loved his accommodation! Simon was then supported with different activities, including:  ten pin bowling and a LOT of Dancing!”

The theme of the weekend was 80’s and Simon certainly got in the spirit!

“It was an amazing weekend – Simon stayed up to the early hours of the morning and partied the night away! He really enjoyed each new experience.  To think what Simon has achieved in the time that he has been at Oakleigh has been truly amazing!” Nichola adds.
