“I have worked at Lapis Care for nearly 3 years. My experience has been highly positive and I feel if you want to work in domiciliary care this is the place to be. They have worked hard to produce a robust and informative induction package so staff feel welcomed and supported. Benefits include contracted hours so you get paid per shift not per client. You are positively encouraged to develop professionally, with support through NVQ level 2 and 3 available.
Lapis is owned and managed by two nurses whose vision right from the start has been to change the face of domiciliary care and provide the best service. We get to know our clients really well and everything is person centred. On a Friday the management get in their cars and deliver fish and chips to any client that wants them. They are also prepared to roll up their sleeves and muck in if needed.
If you are facing a difficulty like illness or bereavement the support is unstinting. I have loved my time and am only leaving to pursue a different career path. It's a team effort we all support each other, everyone's effort is acknowledged and appreciated. It has been tough through coronavirus and lockdown but we have got each other through. I wish them every future success.”
“Have customers review you and share what“I have worked as a Carer for Lapis since they very first set out on their journey in the Healthcare field over 5 years ago now and what an incredible journey it has been!
I have been so fortunate to have been able to witness how Lapis has blossomed from when I first started to now!
Lapis is not just any old care agency in my opinion, they are the epitome of the word CARE agency, as they lead by example, they’re constantly thinking outside of the box on many things and they genuinely do care about both staff and clients!
The wonderful managers and senior members of staff are always on hand to give advice, to actively listen or to jump in to help in anyway that they can and no problem is ever too big, there is always a solution at Lapis!
I have worked with various different care agencies over the years, but Lapis is undoubtedly one of the best companies that I have ever worked for and I do not feel like I am just working for a company, I feel like I am working with a group of people who have become like a second family to me!”they had to say.
