Labour ministry to train care givers

The labour and social affairs ministry wants to train hundreds of care-givers. The ministry which needs to address the problem of an aging population and a lack of social workers, says it wants to train hundreds of people –mainly women between 45 and 55 years of age – who are already working as care givers for close family and elderly relatives. These people would receive special training and could join the ranks of professional care givers once they are ready to go back to work, a ministry spokeswoman told the ctk news agency.
