A Peterhead care home has received top marks from the Care Inspectorate for its service and facilities.

Grangepark Care Home on the town’s Meethill Road, scored 5s all round for its quality of care and support, quality of environment, quality of staffing and quality of management and leadership.

Inspectors said the home, which is operated by Aberdeenshire Council, enjoyed positive interactions between staff and residents, which demonstrated that staff treated residents with very good levels of respect and dignity.

The report stated that residents were central to how the service delivered care and support.

Inspectors spoke to 12 residents who told inspectors they were happy with the standard of care they received at the home and enjoyed staying there.

Inspectors said the proactive use of the organisations’ quality assurance system had meant that the outcomes for the residents had continued to improve since the previous inspection.

The report said: “The management and staff have worked hard to ensure the care and support for the residents remained their main priority.

“There was a positive learning culture within the home and that led to positive outcomes for staff and residents.”

Grangepark manager Eric Fulton said: “It is great to see the hard work and commitment of the staff at Grangepark being recognised and highlighted by the Care Inspectorate for the second consecutive year by achieving 5s across the board with no recommendations.”
