Event Outline

With the rising incidence of dementia, an increasing number of Singaporeans will spend the last years of their lives unable to make decisions for themselves. The Ministry of Social and Family Development has been raising awareness of a legal document known as the Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”) since 2010. Through the LPA, the Mental Capacity Act (“MCA”) helps those who lack mental capacity by granting them legal protection. This seminar will cover the basic principles behind the LPA and MCA.
