Thursday 5 July 2018, Bangkok - MQDC's The Aspen Tree has formalized its partnership with Baycrest, a Canada-based research and care center, to develop services and residences for older adults in Asia.
The Aspen Tree, set up by MQDC last year to provide 'lifetime care' and 'aging in place' for older adults, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Baycrest at Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC) at Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB).
Baycrest Health Sciences has been caring for older adults in Toronto for over 100 years and has a worldwide reputation in healthy aging and, in particular, brain health. Ms Hye-June Park, The Aspen Tree President, signed the MoU with Dr William Reichman, President and CEO of Baycrest Health Sciences, along with MQDC CEO Mr Visit Malaisirirat and Mr Raymond King, Vice President of Baycrest Global Solutions.
The collaboration aims at developing care and services for older adults in Thailand, Southeast Asia, and China as Asia faces a 'grey tsunami' of aging demographics.
