Daniel* and Jacob*, both aged 4-years-old, delighted parents and Advantage Healthcare staff alike at their first school play. The play ‘Under the Water’ took place at a church connected to their school at the end of the summer term.
Advantage Healthcare staff have provided day time care for Jacob since November 2017 and Daniel since October 2018 during both school term and school holidays. Both children have a PEG feed and global developmental delay, Daniel has epilepsy and cerebral palsy and Jacob has a tracheostomy and regular suctioning.
Advantage Healthcare’s Birmingham branch nurse, Rachel Peake said: “It was a privilege to see the boys taking part in this school play. It has been challenging for the boys and their families to learn to adapt to their complex health issues so it’s a delight to see them happily taking part in the school play with their carers and class.”
Daniel’s dad, David*, said: “The play went well and we are very proud of our little boy.”
Rachel attended with client care manager, Kirsty O’Neill and client care staff Tahira khazir, Nabila Aktar and Kahtoon Bibi.
