Operating License Revocation, Foreclosure Force Frail Residents Out From Assisted Living Facilities

In Hayden, Idaho, the Coeur D'Alene Press reports:

  • The operator of the two Autumn Haven assisted living facilities in Hayden has been notified by the state of Idaho that its operating license has been revoked. A bank is foreclosing on the properties and taking them over in March, said Idaho Department of Health and Welfare spokesman Tom Shanahan. The properties will be auctioned off by the bank, he said.

  • Twenty residents had been living at the facility when the bank began foreclosure action. About half have already moved out. The bank contacted the state in December to notify officials of the foreclosure.

  • Shanahan said an official from the department visited the facilities last week, and determined all residents currently living there have at least one option for alternative housing. "Many are probably in the process of moving out," Shanahan said.
