Once you have made the decision that you need some form of care, you need to decide what form this should take.  There are many factors to consider and we are happy to talk through the options available to your to aide your decision.

In the first instance, a partner or senior member of staff will arrange to visit and introduce ourselves and how we work. We will talk though our services and leave you with information on Lapis so that you can consider whether we are the right fit for you.
