Grandholm Care Home in Aberdeen graded 'weak'

An Aberdeen care home has been told it must improve, after being graded "weak" by the Care Inspectorate.

Scotland's social care watchdog said it had concerns about Grandholm Care Home in Bridge of Don area of the city.

Issues included care planning, nutrition and fluid monitoring, wound care, and staff deployment.

A Care Inspectorate spokesperson said: "If we do not see evidence of improvement we will not hesitate to take further action."

The service received an unannounced inspection in January.

A spokesman for the home's owner, Holmes Care, said there was an ongoing process to improve the situation, but they had received positive feedback from relatives of residents about the work already done.
