The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest challenge the care sector has ever faced. This film reflects on a year that brought us closer together as a community, even while the virus kept us physically apart.

Open to admissions

We are now welcoming new admissions, subject to strict controls. Anyone coming into our homes is tested in advance and subject to quarantine, with a dedicated carer on hand to ensure their welfare.

Safety first

We follow the latest expert advice from public health officials and implement strict infection prevention and control procedures, including regular staff testing and use of personal protective equipment.

Well being

Our homes are full of life and, while we can't get out much, rest assured our residents are physically and mentally active and living life to the full. There is never a dull day at a Parklands care home.

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.
