Rhondda MP Chris Bryant told ITV News that the arrests were 'concerning,' but said he was confident that levels of care in the area were of a high standard.
ITV News understands that all three of those arrested work at Zoar Residential Care Home.
Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) last inspected the home in December last year.
The inspection report states that it focused on 'quality of life' and not on staffing, leadership and management at the home.
The report found that out of three respite records inspected, two had no care plans or risk assessments.
It states: "This meant that staff may not always be aware of people's choices and preferences as to how they would like their care to be delivered, what their preferred routines are or how they like to spend their time.
"Staff only had the social services unified assessment to inform them of people’s care needs. This is unsatisfactory as the assessment does not give details as to how care is to be carried out, only that there are particular needs."
Three people have been arrested following an incident at a care home in Tonypandy, police say.
Two men, aged 27 and 72, and a 42-year-old woman, all from Rhondda, were arrested this morning on suspicion of the wilful neglect of a vulnerable adult and perverting the course of justice.
The alleged incident involved an 88-year-old woman who was a resident of Zoar Residential Home in Tonypandy and took place in March this year.
South Wales Police says it is treating the matter as an isolated incident and says it is working with Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW).
