Description

This 18-month investigation revealed a troubled and worsening record of care at assisted living homes, including avoidable injuries and deaths of residents and poor oversight by state regulators. The Post found that many of the residents were sent to homes after years of institutionalization or even out of prison, a combustible mix that led to violence, sexual assaults and homicide. Weak licensing laws and poor enforcement allowed facilities deemed unsafe by regulators to remain open years later.
