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 has nine 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 also manages two homes in Moray on behalf of Craigard Care Limited (in administration).
Parklands homes offer a range of services including residential, assisted living, nursing, dementia 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 compassionate staff members consistently go above and beyond 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.
Established in 1993 by Ron Taylor, Parklands began as a response to the lack of local care services available when Ron personally cared for his grandfather as a young student. What started as a single facility in Buckie has now grown into a network of nine care homes across Moray and the Highlands. Today, Parklands employs nearly 700 staff and provides high-quality residential care for over 300 older people in small, rural communities. Parklands also manages a further two homes in Moray on behalf of Craigard Care Limited (in administration). It is one of the largest independent care providers in the north of Scotland and has been recognised with multiple awards for its commitment to care quality and staff development.
