CBS6 takes Thorough Look at Check-in Program Failures

While Carney’s mom was in ‘independent living,’ which is not regulated by the state, Commonwealth Senior Living also operates 23 “assisted living” communities, which are regulated. CBS 6 reporter Melissa Hipolit did some research and found that nearly two-thirds of their facilities only have either a one year or provisional license from the state. That means the state has found enough violations that they feel the need to visit the facility more often than those who did a better job meeting state standards, which are visited every two to three years.
