Hamden Residential Care Home Put On Probation, Fined

A Hamden residential care home for psychiatric patients has been fined $1,000 and has been placed on probation for two years after one of its owners was accused of stealing funds from two patients. Under a consent order signed Jan. 18 with the state Department of Public Health, the owner and manager, Susan Taylor of Woodbridge, is banned from Garden View Manor and cannot have any contact with patients at the facility. Taylor also cannot have any access to patient funds or medication. Angela Boyle, president of Garden View Manor, will run the facility at 1840 State St., the state order said.
