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.
