Coming Wednesday: Adult family homes

If you haven’t read the Seattle Times’ Seniors for Sale investigation, you should.

We’re planning an editorial for tomorrow about the report, which drew heavily from a newspaper-created database of adult-family-home enforcement actions from 1995 through 2009. Among the findings: An adult family home here in Tacoma holds the dubious record of amassing more serious violations than any other home that remains open for business. The Times’ findings bolster the case for protecting the vulnerable in the state budget and also point to the need for DSHS to make it easier for families to do their own due diligence.
