Narrowsburg adult home to close
NARROWSBURG, NY — The Narrowsburg Home for Adults is in the process of being closed by the New York State Department of Health (DOH) according to two sources familiar with the story. There are some 66 residents in the facility, some with mental and physical challenges. They must all be relocated before the building can be shuttered.
An answering machine responded to a phone call to the facility, and no one immediately returned the call.
A DOH Spokesperson said, “A complaint inspection completed by the department last week at Kelly’s Home for Adults [the former name of the Narrowsburg Home for Adults] found that facility residents were not receiving appropriate care and living in deplorable conditions. As a result, the department issued a Commissioner’s Emergency Order to close this facility. The department is working with local health care agencies to ensure that services and support continues uninterrupted for residents. The department will monitor activities as the closure plan commences, which will include onsite daily visits and daily correspondence.”
