About Parklands

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 around 600 staff and providing residential care for almost 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.

Our Story >

"I looked after my ailing grandfather and I wanted to make sure that the care I gave him, each and every one of our carers today gives that care…and they do."

Ron Taylor, Managing Director, Parklands Care Homes
