State investigates adult foster care

Operations at a Three Rivers-based adult foster-care residence are in limbo as a result of a state investigation.
According to the Kalamazoo Gazette, the license of operator Shoheli Talukder could be revoked by the Michigan Department Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and the Bureau of Community and Health Systems.
The agencies last week issued an order of summary suspension and notice of intent to revoke the license. The Bennett Street home serves as a residence for adults who are developmentally disabled or mentally ill.
According to the Gazette, the action resulted from a complaint about the adult foster care family home and a July 29 investigation. The state agencies did not provide specifics on the complaint but stated that the investigation “found violations of the Adult Foster Care Facility Licensing Act and administrative rules regarding licensee qualifications and suitability, and resident care and protection.”
The home is licensed to care for up to six adults.
