Many adult children in Wyoming have parents living in nursing homes. While this may prompt changes and challenges in their visiting schedules, it is still possible for children and aging parents to enjoy time together and for elders to get the care they need to help them have as high quality of lives as possible, even if they have physical or mental conditions that impede their ability to function independently. Families often must rely on nursing home staff members to help them achieve these goals; sadly, nursing home negligence often reduces quality of life.
Helping a parent transition to life in a Wyoming nursing home can be an emotionally fragile and challenging experience. Adult children want to provide love and support to their aging parents, which often includes entrusting their daily care to others. If such others include licensed professionals who fail to act according to protocol and accepted safety standards, adult children may find themselves filing nursing home negligence claims, as a woman in another state has done.
