Simon’s story

Since the lockdown restrictions eased and the residents were able to return to their regular routines, Simon has been able to achieve goals and aspirations that he was unable to achieve last year due to the restrictions in place.  These goals included attending a music concert, attending horse racing events and booking a holiday.

Simon has said that he is very happy with the support he receives from Alabaré, as he would not have been able to achieve these without support. He has also enjoyed planning and participating in events such as ‘Russell House going green’, an event exploring climate change at home, carrying out eco-friendly tasks such as composting, recycling more items and walking as much as possible. Simon has also been involved in planning other events such as ‘Russell House Octoberfest’ and the recent Jubilee.

Simon has also enrolled on a computer course with support at Alabaré’s Development Centres. This has resulted in him obtaining a digital tablet, which he uses to keep in contact with his family and read important news to improve the skills he is learning on his course. Simon has said he is very excited to have this as he has never had his own tablet and says he is very proud that he is on the journey to complete this course.
