Moray care home development planned
People choosing a care home in Moray could have a new facility after proposals for a new building were submitted to council planners.
Parklands Group lodged a planning application for a £2 million new care home in Elgin, covering 2.67 acres, the Northern Scot reports.
"The market is changing quite dramatically, and will continue to change, with a push to try to keep people in their own home as much as possible," Parklands managing director Ron Taylor told the newspaper.
"We feel there is an opening to look at other types of care, such as palliative and respite care, as well as nursing care."
Mr Taylor went on to say that the company is taking advice from dementia experts at Stirling University to inform the design of the building, which will also feature a biomass heater.
The news comes after plans to build a multi-million pound care village in Peterborough were revealed, according to Peterborough Today.
