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.

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 eight 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.

The company was named 'Outstanding Performing Business (25+ employees)' in the 2015 Highland Business Awards and won the 2016 SCDI Highlands and Islands Business Award for 'Excellence in People Development.'
