Care givers for Institutions
There are 14 old age homes and 6 Asha Bhavans functioning under the Departmentof Social Welfare for the care and protection of old age, destitute, physically handicapped, mentally challenged etc, most of these institutions are accommodating inmates in excess of their capacity.

Also a programme for providing vocational training to inmates of such institutions with the help of Vocational trainers has been launched. The identification of vocational trainers and selection of suitable care giving staff is being done through the Social Welfare Department. Kerala Social Security Mission has taken up the initiative to support such institutions with adequate staff as well as excellent facilities.
