Welcome to Vathsalya Seva Trust

Vathsalya Seva Trust (R.) is philanthropic institution with non-profit and non-governmental credentials.This is constituted by prominent citizens of Karkala with a view to set up an Old Age Home facility which so far was unavailable to the senior citizens of Karkala and surrounding areas. Trust offers an old age home located at Karkala with a sole objective to provide a comfortable shelter to the elderly people.

Old Age Home is located at a 5 acre site and is surrounded by lush green surrounding with a breath-taking view of a stretch of Western Ghats extending from north to the south of the site. With the fast moving lifestyle of the day, the elders are taken as a burden in the family or taken for granted. Vathsalya old age home is definitely an answer to such senior citizens where they can live with dignity and share their life without any generation-gap.

This old age home not just provides a comfortable shelter for those who have crossed the best days of life, but also looks after the physical and psychological changes that old age brings along. This home will create a friendly and family like atmosphere for the elderly people, where they can share their joys and sorrows and live happily.
