The Conyers Police Marshal along with Code Enforcement and the Department of Community Health investigated and charged Sharon Ann Seats, 46, for operating an unlicensed home health facility out of her home at 1213 Creek Forest Court in Conyers.
Corporal Chad Sims, the City of Conyers Marshal, was notified by patrol of a residence in the Forest Villa subdivision that appeared to be operating as a personal care home business. Corporal Sims contacted the Department of Community Health, the government organization charged with regulating personal care homes and issuing licenses for the same, who confirmed neither this address nor the resident is licensed with their agency.
Sharon Seats advised she was formerly a certified nurse assistant at Serenity personal care home in Stone Mountain prior to it being shut down following several investigations by the Department of Community Health. Seats stated she then relocated to 1213 Creek Forest Court and “took some patients from Serenity with [her]”. Seats was housing two adult males and one adult female all suffering from various forms of mental illness and collecting several hundred dollars payment each month from each patient. These patients collect their income from Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Disability.
Adult Protective Services responded to the scene and assisted the Department of Community Health with relocating the patients to an appropriate facility. One of the patients advised he was glad this business was being shut down as the power had been cut off the week previous due to lack of payment. The same patient stated he would leave the home every day and sit in a nearby park all day to avoid confrontations with Seats.
Sharon Ann Seats was arrested for operating an unlicensed home health facility and is currently being held in the Rockdale County Jail.
