Caristanote is a simple, secure place to store essential information about someone and their care. Information which can be shared and accessed by anyone involved in that person’s care at any time.
Initial feedback from carers has been positive, and they have commented that it is simple, easy to use and has been beneficial to them.
You will find a short video on the website which explains more about the benefits of Caristanote: www.caristanote.com and how to register for this free to use tool. It is very straightforward and the video explains how easy this tool is to use.
Caristanote may offer Carers some peace of mind if anything happened to them and somebody had to look after the person they care for.

We will be holding a Drop in on Thursday 18th October from 9am to 2pm at PKAVS for anyone who would like more info about the 'Getting it Right for Cares Across Perth & Kinross' consultation.
