Testimonials
At a time when we were feeling very helpless and could not control our family member's care from a distance, Miranda Smith Homecare provided what we could not give her.
We very much appreciated your services and were very pleased with your concern, the level of care provided and the professional manner in which everything was handled.
Thank you!
Sharon and Bill Ellerton

I have been employing the services of Miranda Smith Homecare in Wellington for care for my elderly parents since September 2005.
I cannot speak more highly of the agency.
The carers we have had have been of a high standard. They are professional, extreemly reliable and punctual, honest and trustworthy, not to mention kind and caring.
The other important factor is consistency. With Miranda Smith we have had very few changes of carers which is so important for elderly people.
Once Miranda Smith took over (care) my life changed. Thankyou for looking after my parents so well.

Since Miranda Smith Homecare has been working for me I have no complaints. The caregivers are very thorough, conscientious and helpful at all times.

As I move on to a new role I would like to take the opportunity to acknowlege and thank Miranda Smith Wellington for the wonderful support you have provided to the family we have worked together with over the past six months or so.
Your ability to be responsive to their situation, work sensitively and felxibly to assess the care needs, recruit and train an appropriate person and then work creatively to solve problems as they arose, was very valuable. Miranda Smith Homecare allowed me to step back from the crisis which had arisen earlier due to inadequate and inappropriate care.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful service.
