Description
Miranda Smith Homecare specialises in personalised flexible homecare so that those who prefer to stay in the familiar and private surroundings of their own home can have maximum independence, yet have access to help as it is needed.

Miranda Smith Homecare was established over 13 years ago, making it the longest running private homecare agency in the country. Since then, we have gone on to develop a reputation as an outstanding team providing excellence in care.

The care we provide is tailored to your needs. We are New Zealand owned, and independent and pride ourselves on delivering a comprehensive and personalised service with a strong focus on catering to clients who demand a high standard of service. We provide care on the days you prefer, and start at the time most convenient to you. We see clients as little as once a week for a few hours, right through to providing 24 hour service seven days a week, ensuring the help they need is readily available.

We are here to help you, short or long-term, day or night. Any services chosen by you will be tailored to suit your needs, lifestyle and preferences.

Testimonials
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, U.S.A.

"The two ladies, Delores and Helen were the loveliest, most trustworthy, caring ladies you could possibly have provided. I can not speak highly enough about the ladies. They showed total commitment to my mother’s care and wellbeing in every possible way, at every moment of the day and night.”
John, Christchurch

“Miranda Smith Homecare has provided kind, capable and empathetic carers, whom I feel they choose carefully based on their knowledge of my needs and requirements. Miranda Smith Homecare really does place a big emphasis on trying to slot the right carer in with each client which is so important.”

Service Description
Service Description
Miranda Smith Homecare provides responsive and flexible home care services specifically tailored to meet our client’s needs.

Miranda Smith Homecare services will be delivered on the days and at the times most convenient to you and all our clients benefit from our 24 hour support service, which allows for peace of mind should unexpected needs arise.

Clients are always able to change times or days, meet new carers or stop and start their care. This flexibility provides clients and families with the confidence to make their own choices and decide what best suits their requirements.

CARERS;

We are committed to selecting the perfect carer to suit you and your family. It is important that your carer is someone you can easily relate to, feel safe with and enjoy having in your home. Clients are able to meet several carers to ensure they find their best match.

We contract responsible individuals who are totally committed to their work and reflect the quality of service offered by our agency. You can rest assured the carers are competent, trustworthy, kind and responsible individuals, whom you can welcome into your home and count on with confidence.

All Miranda Smith carers meet strict criteria and are:

• Personally interviewed and comprehensively assessed by our experienced and trained co-ordinators
• Thoroughly screened, reference and background checked
