Bentonville Assisted Living Facility Shut Down by Department of Human Services

News

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) – A local assisted-living center is no longer running after it’s license was revoked for putting an immediate threat on the health and safety of its residents.

The owner, 71-year-old Angel Floro, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault against two women living there, but these aren’t the only incidents leading to the doors being locked.

Better Home Living is now locked up and empty after the Department of Human Services shut it down for putting its residents in jeopardy.

It’s a string of incidents that DHS says could have resulted in serious harm, injury or even death.

In July of last year, the facility was given a provisional license for failing to have a licensed administrator employed and consistently on the property.

In October, it was given a permanent license.

From December to March 25, Better Home Living failed to complete a number of practices, including ensuring medications were properly administered.
