The Carol Brand
When deciding on a name for our company, we wanted to accomplish a few things;
- Trustworthy and reliable persona
- A name that resonated in a positive way with people
- Short and easy to remember
- Supported our longer term vision (Care for all)
When our clients use Carol, they are requesting a person, not a software program. Yes, a software program is used to connect the nurse to the client and their family, but the core of what we do is human interaction. This solution is helping to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for people.
Our goal is to build a brand that your family can trust and rely on, to deliver expert care and peace of mind, right to your doorstep.
