Making memories on holidays and day trips

At Home From Home Care, experiencing new places and making memories is really important to the individuals we support so they can live their lives to the fullest. 

We believe that opportunities should be unlimited and we encourage individuals – on their own terms – to explore a wide world of activities and interests. That’s why, when an individual has an aspiration to visit a new place or take a trip somewhere they love, we go above and beyond to make this happen. 

Whether it’s a staycation to Center Parcs, a day trip to Alton Towers or even a holiday further afield to Disneyland Paris, individuals are continually encouraged and supported to achieve their goals. 

Living an ‘ordinary life’

Taking a break and going away on holiday is something that we all enjoy as part of an ‘ordinary life’ and this shouldn’t be any different for people with learning disabilities and autism. 

Holidays are a great way to make memories with friends and have new experiences, as well as overcoming obstacles like meeting new people and using public transport. 

So far this year, individuals have enjoyed trips to Disneyland Paris, Center Parcs, Blackpool, Alton Towers, The Thomas Centre in Louth and a relaxing spa break at Tattershall Lakes.

One of the highlights has been our trip to Calvert Trust in the Lake District, which provides adventure breaks and holidays for people with disabilities. Based in Keswick, there were activities including canoeing, sailing, handbiking, orienteering, swimming, and much more! 

And the holidays don’t stop there… this summer we have even more trips planned including Chessington World of Adventures, Butlins and London – to see the Tower of London. 

A trip of a lifetime

This year, after four years of planning and preparation, our colleagues supported an individual to achieve his dream of going to Disneyland Paris and seeing the Princess Parade! 

This was a fantastic achievement for him and, not only did he love going on this great adventure, but it was also extremely rewarding for our colleagues to play a part in making it happen. 

One colleague said: “Seeing him achieving his dream to go to Disneyland was incredible to be part of” and another said: “Being able to share this experience with his family was just magical.”

By supporting individuals on these fantastic trips, colleagues get to see a different side to the individuals they support and develop even greater relationships with them and their families.
