Meet Frankie and his family

Full width content image

Frankie is two years old and has chronic lung disease. He is oxygen dependent and has Downs Syndrome. Sean began working with the family in February this year. He originally supported Frankie’s brother, Jackson, playing with him and taking him to nursery as Steph, his mum, doesn’t drive.

Now that Jackson is at school full-time, Sean’s support is focused on Frankie and Steph, often helping with the weekly shopping. He’s there to take the family to and from appointments at Alder Hey and Bolton hospitals, supports Steph at Multi-Disciplinary meetings and offers emotional support when it’s needed.
