Judge appoints receiver for beleaguered Park Slope assisted living facility
Prospect Park Residence owner Haysha Deitsch must pay for repairs
The families and supporters of seven Park Slope seniors cheered the recent decision by a Brooklyn judge to appoint a temporary receiver for their embattled Park Slope assisted living facility.
The seven seniors are the only ones left at the Prospect Park Residence, once a well-regarded and comfortable home for the elderly. But it has been left shabby and without services by its owner, Haysha Deitsch, who has been trying to sell the property to a developer.
Deitsch bought the building in 2006 for $40 million. He made an agreement in January 2014 to sell it for $76 million, but the deal fell through after the residents dug in their heels.
Brian Rosenman, a nursing home operator and developer nominated by the state Department of Health, was appointed as receiver for a term of six months.
