Parklands Care Homes is a multi award winning care company and one of the largest independent care home providers in the north of Scotland. It operates 10 care homes across Moray and the Highlands, with a number of new care facilities planned in the coming years as part of a multi-million pound investment plan.
Parklands homes offer a range of services including residential, respite, nursing, personal and palliative care. Care needs are always tailored to the individual. We see our residents and staff as part of the Parklands 'family'. Our friendly and dedicated staff go the extra mile to ensure that residents enjoy their stay at Parklands and live happy, fulfilled lives.
Parklands’ values inform the way we deliver individual quality care, recognise and reward our people and engage with our communities.
Parklands was established almost 30 years ago by Ron Taylor. As a young student, Ron had cared for his elderly grandfather and grew frustrated at the lack of local care services. He set up Parklands in 1993, initially with one facility in Buckie. Today, Parklands operates nine care homes in Moray and the Highlands, employing almost 700 staff and providing residential care for over 300 older people in small, rural communities. It is one of the largest independent care providers in the north of Scotland and has won a series of prestigious awards for its commitment to care quality and to people development.
