Staff from an Aberdeen care home have been praised for working with other professionals to help residents.
Balnagask House on North Balnagask Road, Torry, can look after up to 30 residents.
Monitors from the Care Inspectorate visited on December 7 and have now published their report.
They rated the home “good” for the way it supports people’s wellbeing – the third best of six possible ratings – and ‘adequate’ for planning support and care – the fourth best rating.
“A particularly good area was the effort that went in to working with other people, for example, health colleagues, the hairdresser who had been there for many years, the therapet and the intergenerational working with local school children,” said the report.
“One innovative result of this effort was there were active discussions taking place with the aligned GPs about anticipatory care plans, which would help people to discuss significant changes in their life.”

Residents told inspectors the food served was good.
The report added: “One good idea we observed was a wishing tree, where key workers had talked with people to see what they would wish for, with the aim of achieving these wishes.”
One resident told inspectors: “I feel safe and confident.”
Another said: “Staff look after my needs with respect.”
