A hearing exploring possible violations at assisted living facility in Cumming is scheduled to resume next week.

Monday, Judge Stephanie Howells of the Office of State Administrative Hearings heard the case brought by the Georgia Department of Community Health against Tara Plantation.

The hearing will continue June 18, though a decision isn’t expected immediately.

Pamela Keene, spokeswoman for the community health department, said it “does not comment on ongoing cases.”

Officials with the facility have denied the department’s contention that it was in violation of state law.

Assisted Living Concepts, which owns the site, released a statement saying the company is “confident of the facts showing that Tara Plantation is complying with Georgia regulations.”

“Our goal is to continue to improve and to raise the quality of care at Tara Plantation,” the statement reads.

“We look forward to resolving this matter and continuing to focus our full attention on the needs of our residents and their families.”
