June 2017: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Sunrise Senior Living for allegedly engaging in a scheme to defraud seniors and people with disabilities. The complaint alleges that the assisted living facility deceptively represents that its staff provides residents with the care they need based on resident assessments performed by the staff when, according to plaintiffs, the facility does not use the results of the assessments to determine the care provided to residents and makes staffing decisions based on labor budgets instead of residents’ needs.
