A romance at Lifeways: Paige and Oakley, who we support, celebrate their engagement!
A budding romance between two individuals we support at our Grimsby supported living service has blossomed into a proposal – with an engagement party to celebrate!
Paige and Oakley, who are both in their twenties, live in their own apartments at the Grimsby service. They both moved into the service within days of each other when it opened in February last year.
And by coincidence, Paige and Oakley’s apartme nts are just one door apart!
Before long, the two began dating. Spending lots of time together, they both found a lot of common ground.
Their shared interests include video games, films, comedy, and animals – “especially budgies and other birds,” says Paige.
After one year and one month together, Paige and Oakley decided to get married. Earlier this month, they celebrated with an engagement party at the service, alongside their support team, who have supported them in their relationship.
The couple haven’t yet decided on a date for the wedding – but enjoy taking things in their stride.
“I couldn't ask for a better partner,” says Paige. “We had an amazing engagement party.”
Congratulations, Paige and Oakley!
