The Aspen Tree has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Canada’s Baycrest Global Solutions, a world-renowned research and care center, to partner in developing care and communities for older adults in Asia and Thailand. The MoU was signed by The Aspen Tree President Ms. Hye-June Park and Dr. William E Reichman, Baycrest President and CEO, who signed on behalf of Baycrest’s wholly owned international subsidiary Baycrest Global Solutions Inc.
The alliance aims to integrate Baycrest’s healthcare excellence with The Aspen Tree’s expertise in property and services to improve quality of life for older adults and offer global best practice. Baycrest and The Aspen Tree share a dedication to providing lifetime care for older adults in Thailand, Southeast Asia, and the People’s Republic of China and enabling civilized aging through innovations in sustainable care and residential design and management, to encourage aging-in-place and to help older adults keep the wellness and brain health to live happily, enjoying ‘intrinsic dignity,’ self-respect, and fulfilling relationships with nature, family, and society at large. Under the MoU, Baycrest will help The Aspen Tree develop a new living model for older adults, integrating health and wellness programs based on Baycrest’s at Toronto, where it has been operating for over 100 years. The collaboration could greatly benefit older adults in countries experiencing the ‘grey tsunami’ of aging demographics. Thailand is Asia’s third most rapidly aging nation, with about a quarter of Thais set to be 65 or over by 2040.
