    Answered . I would generally recommend it, however there is no official rule. That being said, a safety investigation might find that there is a problem with a parent only having a one bedroom divider. Quite often, of for financial reasons that is the only thing that can be afforded, I will tell the parent to make the bedroom into two smaller bedrooms with a partition, or section off part of the living room as a bedroom for the parent. Contact an attorney in your area immediately, and provide him/her with all of the documentation relative to this matter.
