The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

El­derly peo­ple across Fife face an un­cer­tain fu­ture af­ter be­ing told their care homes are to close. Ed­in­burgh-based Bield Hous­ing blamed fi­nan­cial pres­sures for its de­ci­sion to shut Gillie Court and Grants Bank in Dun­fermline and Fi­navon Court in Glen­rothes by July. The move af­fects around 50 res­i­dents. The three Fife sites are among 12 across Scot­land fac­ing the axe. Brian Lo­gan, Bield chief ex­ec­u­tive, said it had been a “last re­sort”. Con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings to dis­cuss op­tions will be held.
