Medical Amenities

Inmates regain their physical and mental health through proper care and protection given to them. The institution maintains a clinic, an infirmary and pharmacy with all necessary medications. We do have fully trained nursing staff for service. Regular medical checkup and medical camps (Ayurveda as well as Homoeopathy) are conducted every month by various institutions and departments.

Most of our inmates are highly chronic in nature. Here we have a well established inter disciplinary team with doctors, psychiatric social workers, experienced nursing staff and other voluntary staff. Medical camps are conducted every month from Indian System of Medicine (District Ayurveda office, Kollam), Public health centre (Vilakudy panchayat) and Homeopathy (Homeo dispensary, Vilakudy panchayat). Moreover on every Saturday our patients are taken to Trivandrum mental health centre for psychiatric treatments.
