— The state Division of Health Service Regulation filed notice Friday of plans to revoke the license of a Raleigh assisted living center accused of leaving residents to care for themselves and neglecting their needs.

The license for Jones Family Care Home, 3620 Barwell Road, was suspended in November after a report showed residents were left alone on several occasions in the facility without a working telephone or air conditioning unit. One resident said “they would walk to the local fire station if they needed help,” according to the report.

The DHSR also suspended the facility's license to admit residents following the report.The facility cared for up to six patients.

The owners of Jones Family Care Home said on Friday that they plan to appeal DHSR's decision.
