Certificate Course in Caregiving


Increased Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization (LPG) with modernization has brought about problems of old age, disaster related injuries, mental stress disorders & paucity of trained medical & health professionals etc. This process has widened the gap between the poor / rural and rich / urban as the expected development is confined to the hands of limited individuals and isolated pockets. This further resulted for vulnerable circumstances as Poverty, Disability and Development acts as a cause and consequence of each other. In view of these consequences, Manochetana took a decision to meet these challenges for the need of care giving from the family to the community and the institution as an important component of a continuing care and rehabilitation.
The concept of care giving and creation of a cadre of care givers is the need and demand of the rural population. The availability of trained care givers and operationalzing the programme in care giving will fulfill the needs of the chronically ill, elderly and persons with disability whose number is increasing at an alarming rate.


To prepare a cadre of trained care givers to provide quality care in various areas of disabilities ranging from infancy to old age with sustainable service delivery systems.


  • To design standardized course modules for care givers.|
  • To educate and train caregivers.
  • To monitor, assess, evaluate and review content of the feedback.
  • To make desirable changes in the courses more beneficial to the clients.
  • To create better awareness among the care givers and care seekers as well as other stakeholders with participatory approaches for better understanding & building relationships and thus for framing / developing sustainable and quality problem solving approaches.

Understanding the need of the developing processionals in general and more particularly in the rural area, Manochetana took initiatives for the establishment of HRD Centre with Courses matching the needs and demands of the local PWDs as well as the local people. It is in the process with Rehabilitation Council of India, National Institutes and Universities for making it as an effective engine making centre.
