I'm also pretty sure that they are not State regulated, any more than a Bar or a Motel is regulated.
It is a BUSINESS; supposedly so:
Some are Professionally Managed, and some are run by a Board of some of the Residents.
Some have Draconian Rule and Regulations, and some are kind and considerate.
Some are well-rin and financially sound, some are not.
Do you know where your's fall in this quagmire of posibilities?
Do you know a good DA or an Attorney?
Do you have a potent BBB?
