Your loved one has recently been paroled from prison and you are happy to have them home. However, it is important to remember that this is a transitional period. Your loved one will need some time to get reacquainted with the outside world.

Because this period can be very challenging, the parolee will need a strong support system from friends and family. If it appears that this seems like a problem outside of your hands, there are many support services in your area that can help with any additional needed support. The services could be a weekly meeting, a mentorship, etc. One of the best things to understand is that both sides went through a tough period while the parolee was incarcerated. They lost their freedom and time with their loved ones and you might have had to take on more responsibility at home, either by being financially responsible for their household or having to take on the care of children. The role that you have been in while your loved one was in prison might change again now that they are home. Be prepared to have your loved one want to take back the role they had previously.

During imprisonment, there may have been a strain on your relationship with your loved one, limited visits or phones calls. This may have been hard on both of you and it may be too painful or difficult to talk about. It may be in everyone’s best interests to seek counseling to help move past this rough times.

Your loved one might feel disoriented and out of touch upon their return but with love and support from you, family and friends, it very possible for them to readjust into society.
