Closure of Mo Dhachaidh care home

9 March 2023

The last three remaining residents have today been safely transferred from Mo Dhachaidh care home in Ullapool.

Discussions on the future of the building are continuing.

Ron Taylor, managing director of Parklands Care Homes said: "I am grateful to the team at Mo Dhachaidh who, with the support of NHS Highland, have managed this difficult process with grace and compassion. Our priority has always been the safety and well-being of the residents; while we are desperately sad to lose them, we take some comfort from the fact that they have been safely transferred to new homes where they will continue to receive the care they require.

"I know that our decision to close Mo Dhachaidh has been a disappointment to many in the community. It is not the outcome we would have wished for. As someone who founded Parklands due to my own experiences caring for my grandfather, I take this closure decision very personally and I feel for everyone affected.

"No decision has been made on the future of the building itself. However, I have made it clear that we have no intention of profiting from the sale of Mo Dhachaidh. We are continuing to have discussions with the local community to determine the best course of action for the future of the building."
