James Craigie, chairman of Abbeyfield Scotland, said: “We know that there is a demand for high-quality housing for people who still want to remain independent but have access to support services as their needs change.

“We are investing significantly in the Aberdeen area and our relationship with Dandara, as their preferred care provider, allows us to provide the accommodation and a flexible range of support that the market is looking for.”
