Sisterly love triumphs over anxiety

A young woman with learning difficulties is enjoying a happier lifestyle thanks to support from her sister and a specialist behaviour psychologist who teamed up to help her be better understood.

 

Donjeta Kaliquani, who is non-verbal, was displaying behaviour that challenges at the care service where she lives in Mitcham, Surrey, so her sister Fitore Kaliquani and behavioural expert Francesca Gerald worked closely with her and the support team at Rosebank Lodge to turn things around.

 

After about six months of dedicated efforts, Donjeta (27) is now calmer and settling down well in her new home, which is run by care provider Regard.
