Ng Ling Ling on Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

With more people expected to suffer from dementia, the Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) should be widely promoted to all Singaporeans, said MP Ng Ling Ling in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6). She said this will enable them to make an early, informed and personal choice of a proxy decision-maker who they can trust to take care of their interests. She also called for more support for seniors who are not tech-savvy. She suggested roping in Silver Generation Ambassadors to guide and assist seniors who are immobile and cannot go to Citizen Connect Centres for LPA services.
