As an ageing population has become a common characteristic found in many countries,  the demand for caregivers or persons who are qualified to care for the elderly has increased immensely. The duties of a caregiver require a solid understanding of health issues that may affect the elderly and a practical ability to manage medicine as well as understanding social issues which surround them.

Our certificate course in Elderly Care Giver is designed to cover comprehensively the theoretical knowledge required as well as important practical elements such as communication skills and the managing of their own hygiene as well as that of the persons being taken care of.  Furthermore, a unique element of our elderly caregiver programmes is the aspect of anti-ageing techniques which will address many of the concerns of the elderly and is in line with the concept of extending longevity of life which is a fundamental feature of Ayurveda.

Although our courses are intended to equip you to work as a Caregiver professionally or part time, the successful completion of the course will also lead to a pathway into the nursing profession, with further education.
