Parklands Care Homes has agreed to support administrators in managing Wakefield House in Cullen and Weston View in Keith after existing operator Craigard Care Limited was placed in administration.
The agreement to manage both homes on behalf of the administrator ensures that they can continue to operate normally.
Parklands will work closely with the administrators to ensure a smooth transition and to maintain the high standards of care that residents deserve. Employees will report to Parklands but will continue to be employed by Craigard Care.
Ron Taylor, Managing Director of Parklands Care Homes, said: "We have agreed to work with the administrator to ensure that Craigard Care Limited’s homes in Keith and Cullen can continue to operate normally. We understand that this will be a worrying time for residents, their relatives and staff. Working with the administrator, our focus is on ensuring that residents in both homes receive high quality care and that staff are supported through this challenging period.
“The administration of Craigard Care Limited will come as a shock to many in the community and highlights the ongoing challenges facing the care sector. However, given our experience as a care provider in the north-east over 30 years, and the fact that all of our Moray homes have a 5 star rating, we believe we are well placed to ensure that these homes can deliver the highest standards of care.”
