B) PUBLIC TALK ON MENTAL CAPACITY ACT (MANDARIN)
With the recent introduction of the Mental Capacity Act which came into effect on 1 Mar 2010, members may wish to know more details as this Act sets out a clear legislative framework to empower Singaporeans to appoint trusted persons to make decisions on their behalf in the event they lose their mental capacity due to conditions such as dementia, traumatic brain damage or stroke. It also sets out safeguards to protect some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
From feedback gathered from participants, there are requests that the same talk should also be held in Mandarin. To ensure that more Singaporeans benefit, we will be holding another session of this forum in Mandarin
