Mental Capacity Act

Effective 1 March 2010, the Mental Capacity 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. More information is available through Office of Public Guardian, Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF).
