Senior Housing vs Assisted Living
Ralph Dyer died in a fire at Bel Air Senior Apartments on November 27, 2008. Although the facility claimed to be a senior housing complex, it was established to be far more. It is an assisted living facility providing care to vulnerable adults without a license.
No sprinklers or fire suppression systems existed in the facility.
Persons placing loved ones in facilities need to look at more than labels or signs on the door.
