Our caregivers will provide assistance with packing & loading of belongings at the hospital, ensure collection of prescriptions, complete a light grocery shop, settle client at home with food and fluids, ensure next of kin is advised client is home, safe and comfortable and informed of any post-discharge instructions and follow-up appointments. Provision of personal cars and home help as required.
With Miranda Smith Homecare there is a 24 hour phone service. If a client needs help, support or advice at any time there is always someone to call. We can provide carers during the day or night, for either short or long-term placements.
"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!"
