Our Community Care Caseworker has successfully obtained a direction for release on parole for a disabled prisoner who had been imprisoned for 30 years.
The prisoner in question is elderly and infirm, with a heart condition, reduced mobility, and demonstrating significant cognitive decline – including a drastically impaired short-term memory.
Our Caseworker secured a comprehensive community care package for him, providing a suitable release address. This enabled the parole panel to direct his release and to enable him to resettle successfully in the community.
His placement is a specialist supportive care home that specifically supports those who are institutionalised. Our Caseworker has also initiated arrangements for him to receive mentoring in the community from an ex-prisoner.
