WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Community and Health Systems (BCHS) issued an order of summary suspension and notice of intent to revoke the license of a Washtenaw County adult foster care large group home licensee, Fairfax Manor Health Care Associates, Inc., Fairfax Manor IV, #AL810244190, 1900 Prospect Road, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48198. This action resulted from a recent investigation of a complaint of the adult foster care large group home.
The September 22, 2016, complaint investigation found violations of the Adult Foster Care Facility Licensing Act and/or administrative rules regarding the licensee’s financial and administrative capability. BCHS took emergency action to protect the health, welfare, and safety of vulnerable adults.
Effective 6:00 p.m. on September 23, 2016, the summary suspension order prohibits Fairfax Manor Health Care Associates, Inc., from operating an adult foster care large group home at 1900 Prospect Road, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48198, or at any other address or location. Accordingly, it may not accept physically handicapped, developmentally disabled, mentally ill or aged adults for care after that date and time. The order also requires Fairfax Manor Health Care Associates, Inc., to inform all of the guardians of adults in its care that its license has been suspended and that it can no longer provide adult foster care services.
Fairfax Manor Health Care Associates, Inc., has held a license to operate an adult foster care large group home since August 8, 2003. The license was for 20 adults.
Michigan law defines an adult foster care large group home as “an adult foster care facility with the approved capacity to receive at least 13 but not more than 20 adults to be provided with foster care.”
Licensee has the right to appeal this suspension. The case will be forwarded to the Michigan Administrative Hearing System (MAHS) for a hearing date.
