With proposals to digitalise the Lasting Power of Attorney, safeguards must be put in place to ensure that elderly donors, especially those who are less educated, are not cheated, said MP Don Wee in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6). He called for additional measures to screen potential donees, in particular those who are unrelated to the donors. Mr Wee also asked if roving teams could be sent to the homes of people with mobility issues or who are not digitally savvy, to help them register their LPAs.
