Dozens of adult-care homes in North Carolina — including one in Buncombe and another in Henderson County — could be forced to close and their mentally ill residents released with few options for finding a new home, according to a recent Raleigh News&Observer report. "As many as 1,200 North Carolina adults who are mentally ill could soon be put out of rest homes and assisted living centers, as federal Medicaid regulators start enforcing a long-standing law that prohibits housing too many such residents alongside elderly people," says the report by Thomas Goldsmith and MIchael Biesecker. Canterbury Hills in Buncombe and Hampton House in Henderson could be affected, says Lee Ann Smith, longterm care regional ombudsman for the Asheville-based Land of Sky Regional Council.
