Luke and his family

Full width content image

Luke is a bubbly ten year old little boy who loves football and to look at him, you’d never know he has a congenital heart defect. He has spent many months in hospital with treatment and surgery. This has meant that his little sister, Lottie, has not had the attention Kurt and Kelly, her parents, would like as they have spent so much time in hospital with Luke.

Family Support Worker, Sean, spends time with Lottie playing with her and giving her the one to one attention a little girl needs. Kelly and Kurt wanted to make sure that Lottie did not miss out on still having fun so Sean takes her for days out and spends time at home with her playing games. Lottie can also talk to Sean about things that are bothering her and when Luke is well enough, Sean takes both children out which gives Kurt and Kelly some much needed respite.
