Singapore’s Office of the Public Guardian Met with the
Center for Guardianship Certification (CGC) Representatives in September
In Singapore, the Mental Capacity Act permits guardians to be appointed to act for persons who have lost capacity, in the broad areas of personal welfare and /or property and affairs matters. An overwhelming majority of their guardians are family members.
They met with CGC to gain insight into our already-established model on how the professional guardianship model works, and also importantly, how these professional guardians are regulated. President Vicki Alkire, Board member Sally Hurme, Esq. and Executive Director Denise Calabrese met with the delegation from Singapore and had a very productive meeting!
