Our Ambassador

Anyone may suffer from dementia or stroke at certain stages of our lives. How could we help ourselves and our family prepare and arrange matters while still of sound mind? This is a complex question that requires cross-discipline expertise and support. MIPCRC endeavors to promote the concept of “Prevent, Prepare & Protect” by collating knowledge, strengthening communication, and engendering learning and cooperation.
