Prospect Park Residence in breach of court order, say lawyers

Judge ordered owner to maintain services until residents depart ahead of likely condo conversion

The operator of a Park Slope assisted living facility is in breach of a court order to maintain essential services at the residence, lawyers and caregivers for elderly tenants allege.

The owner of Prospect Park Residence is trying to wind down operations ahead of a likely condo conversion, but a judge temporarily blocked the process in June after residents filed suit over the original closure plan.

In June, Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Wayne Saitta told property owner Haysha Deitsch that 1 Prospect Park West must continue operating until all of the tenants find new homes. About a dozen residents remain at the residence, DNAinfo reported.

However, services have been cut, and seniors are not being bathed or fed properly, according to recent filings cited by DNAinfo. Caregivers and a lawyer told the news site that the residents have gone without air conditioning and hot water at times.

In a statement to DNAinfo, Prospect Park Residence denied the allegations.

“Management and staff have taken extraordinary steps to ensure continuity of care is maintained and that residents continue to reside in a safe and secure environment,” Prospect Park Residence spokeswoman Deborah Fasser told the website. [DNAinfo] — Tom DiChristopher
