A hearing for a Dothan assisted living facility has been postponed.

Grans Home, located on the corner of South Foster and West Savannah Street shut its doors indefinitely in February after allegations of abuse surfaced.

A contested case hearing to determine whether to permanently revoke the license to operate Gran’s Home was originally scheduled for today. That hearing has been postponed for April 22 at the Houston county health department.

The State of Alabama Public Health Department issued an Emergency Order of License Suspension for the facility in February.

According to the order, an investigation at the facility revealed violations of the State Board of Health including safety hazards to residents in addition to verbal and physical abuse.
