MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — State regulators are overseeing an assisted-living facility in Modesto owned by the same people who allegedly left behind more than a dozen residents at a Castro Valley care home last month.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports state officials now monitor the Sundial Palms Assisted Living & Memory Care in Modesto as part of an arrangement made with the owners. A consultant was hired to serve as the facility’s executive director until it is sold to a new owner this month.
The move was in response to an Oct. 24 incident where more than a dozen people were virtually abandoned at a Castro Valley assisted-care center after the state revoked the facility’s license.
