Case Study - Respite Support


A young woman, suffering from domestic violence, was in crisis. She had mild learning disabilities and some mental health issues. She was lured by an older man who married her for her Passport so he could remain in the UK. He was a control freak who beat her up and would not allow her to speak to anyone outside the home. One day he beat her so badly that their neighbour called the police. Her husband was arrested and she was moved into respite care in Reading. Unfortunately, she ended up contacting one of her husband’s family members and they convinced her that she should return home. Comfort Care was, however, able to offer several weeks’ valuable respite to enable her to recover physically and regain her strength.
