The Aspen Tree to Launch Training for Caregivers

25 August 2020, Bangkok – The Aspen Tree, a specialist in communities and services for older adults in Thailand, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Panyapiwat Institute of Management (PIM) to train caregivers for older adults in Thailand to global standards.

Signed at The Forestias, where The Aspen Tree’s first community is under construction in a 243-rai green neighborhood, the MoU will launch a caregiver training program licensed by the Department of Health and guided by Baycrest, a world-renowned Canadian eldercare specialist.

The Forestias is the first urban project designed to provide happy, healthy, sustainable living in all dimensions. The Aspen Tree at The Forestias is a holistic community for older adults with specialized medical facilities.

PIM is Thailand’s first and largest corporate university. Founded by CP All in 2007, the institute currently has 20,000 students at 10 faculties and 2 colleges. 

Mr. Visit Malaisirirat, CEO of MQDC, the parent of The Aspen Tree, said the MoU addresses the needs of Thailand’s rapidly aging population.

“Thailand’s caregivers for older adults have, until now, lacked real opportunities to develop their expertise and grow in their profession,” he said.

“With input from Baycrest, a globally renowned eldercare center in Canada, the new course will bring person-centered best practice to Thailand.”

The Aspen Tree is collaborating on its launch community at The Forestias with Baycrest, which has cared for older adults in Toronto for over 100 years. Affiliated with the University of Toronto, Baycrest uniquely combines its research with providing care and support for 1,500 older adults.

Ms. Hye-June Park, President of The Aspen Tree, said the course would contribute to outstanding quality of life at the new community.

“Older adults today want to live happily, healthily, and independently, which requires full-spectrum support,” she said.

“Together with PIM we can now give the assurance of informed, capable staff, certified to provide impeccable service.”

Known for its commitment to ‘For All Well-Being’, to benefit all life, MQDC set up The Aspen Tree in 2018 as a specialist in communities and services for older adults.
