A care home in the Borders has been heavily criticised by regulators in three separate reports.
Riverside Healthcare Centre in Selkirk was investigated by the Care Inspectorate following complaints made by a relative of a female resident.
The complaint concerned her end of life care and the use of a scheduled painkiller drug. 9 out of 14 of the relative's complaints were upheld.
A surprise inspection of the Bridge Street home took place in December.
The home provides 24 hour care for up to 45 elderly people.
Inspectors graded Riverside "weak" in quality of care and support and in quality of management and leadership.
A spokesperson at the care home said:
The council hopes the development will encourage social landlords and private developers to build similar schemes.
Building work on the new home would begin next year and be completed in 2016.
A new respite centre could also be created to replace Cavendish House, which cares for adults with learning disabilities. The building is around 50 years old and badly in need of replacement.
Any changes would be subject to consultation with service users and families.
The extra-care housing is to include 40 apartments with one or two bedrooms enabling couples to stay together, something currently not available in the town. The homes would be designed to support people living with dementia and include 24 hour on-site care and support staff.
A new £ 9 million care home development for older people opens in Carlisle. Bosses say the big difference is residents and their families can buy and sell the accommodation instead of throwing money down the drain by paying a weekly rent.
A Cumbrian care home is celebrating it's 150th birthday. The Silloth Nursing and residential Care Home opened its doors in 1862. In that time it has cared for convalescing patients from the Cumberland Infirmary who used to arrive by train.
The home also looked after wounded soldiers during World War 1 and offered care to woman from Gretna Munitions. A host of former staff have been invited to join the celebrations at the home which cares for elderly people and young disabled adults.
Three councillors opposed to the closure of Woodlands care home near Distington addressed the adult scrutiny panel and set out seven flaws they believed were in the consultation process which took place early this year.
After three house of deliberation and debate the panel made the decision to support the decision cabinet made last month.
A west Cumbrian care home that has been approved for closure will be discussed by county councillor again today.
Woodlands Care home in Distington was one of three in west Cumbria that were earmarkerd for closure.
Following a three month consultation period Woodlands was the only one that wasn't saved. That decision was called in by three county councillors and it's impending closure will now be discussed by a scrutiny committee.
Families of residents at a Langholm care home say they're desperate for it to remain open.
The operators of the Dalarran home say it's making a loss and are looking for more cash from Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Supporters say the home is vital to the local community and its 12 residents.
Today Alan Weatherstone, whose parents are in the Dalarran, said: "The NHS and the council in Dumfries and Galloway have admitted there's a need for care here and we need them to step up to the mark and do something about it.
"If we lose Dalarran it will be a disaster for the Eskdale Valley."
A council meeting about the home's future is due to take place on Tuesday.
