ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A senior living community in Allentown is on notice after the death of one of its residents.

The state says Emeritus at Allentown, located at 1545 W. Greenleaf, did not follow proper protocol after a resident died in September, violating several state regulations.

The Department of Public Welfare placed Emeritus on provisional license.

That means the facility has six months to make corrections to the violations before it can get its license back.
