DETROIT – Dennis Williams is haunted by the memory of his mother, Wanda Parker, through the window at a Michigan nursing home.
He said she was begging for help.
It was the last time he saw his 68-year-old mother alive. She died of COVID-19 on April 7, two days after she was transported to a hospital from the Villages of Lapeer Nursing and Rehabilitation.
Williams said he saw employees of the facility not wearing masks, gloves or other personal protective equipment (PPE) during his through-the-window visits with his mother before she died. He’s aware of the lower COVID-19 statistics reported at other nursing homes in the area.
