Two care homes have gone into administration in the Highland region of Scotland.

NHS Highland confirmed an administrator has been appointed to take over the running of Grandview House care home in Grantown-on-Spey and Main’s House care home in Newtonmore (pictured).

Grandview House, which cares for 34 residents, is to undergo a managed closure over a 13-week period.

A NHS Highland spokesperson said: “Liaison Social Workers have been appointed and the priority for NHS Highland will be to work with residents and their families to find new homes for the residents that best meet their care needs.”

Staff at the home are being supported to find other employment opportunities.

Main’s House will continue to operate whilst a buyer is sought for the facility.

NHS Highland Area Manager, Maria Dickson, said: “This is a sad time for residents, families and staff at Grandview Care Home.  The home has provided excellent care to the local Grantown community for many years and I am grateful to the provider and their staff for their years of caring service to residents, particularly so during the challenging COVID-19 period.  We are optimistic that Main’s House will attract a buyer to enable the continued delivery of this service to the Newtonmore and wider community.”

Dinah Hanid, on behalf of Eavis family which runs both homes, said: “As a family, it has been a privilege to work with so many wonderful people for more than two decades.  We are truly sorry that we can no longer continue to operate our services.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have supported us over many years.”
