October 7, 2021 - The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Bureau of Community and Health Systems (BCHS), has summarily suspended and issued a notice of intent to revoke the adult foster care large group home license of Adultcare of Independence Twp Inc, located at 8541 Eston Road, in Clarkston.
The complaint investigation that concluded on October 6, 2021, found violations of the Adult Foster Care Facility Licensing Act and administrative rules. LARA took emergency action to protect the health, welfare, and safety of vulnerable adults.
Effective October 6, 2021, the summary suspension order prohibits Adultcare of Independence Twp Inc from operating an adult foster care large group home at 8541 Eston Road, in Clarkston, or at any other address or location. Accordingly, Adultcare of Independence Twp Inc may not accept adults for care after that date and time. The order also requires the licensee to inform all the guardians of adults in their care that their license has been suspended and that they can no longer provide adult foster care services.
Since LARA has summarily suspended the license, an administrative hearing will promptly be scheduled before an administrative law judge with the Michigan Office of Administrative Hearings and Rules.
