Personal Care Home owner agrees to pay $700,000 settlement in fraud lawsuit.

Philadelphia, PA: (June-11-08) Rosalind S. Lavin, former owner of four area Personal Home Care Centers, has agreed to pay $700,000 as part of a settlement in a fraud lawsuit. The suit accused the owners of diverting various Social Security benefits from use for the care of residents to the owners' own benefit, while it described the homes as unsafe, unsanitary, and unfit for the elderly and often disabled people who had been living there. In addition to the monetary payout, Lavin has been barred from owning or operating any care facilities, and three of the four homes have been closed. The fourth home, Ivy Ridge, in the 5600 block of Ridge Avenue, is nearly closed, and can only be used as a boarding house.
