Felton Hosts AIC Delegation from Singapore

San Francisco, CA (Thursday, July 20, 2017) – In July, Felton was delighted to host a delegation from the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) from Singapore, which supports seniors living in their homes and in the community. Felton President and
CEO Al Gilbert and Senior Division Director Cathy Spensley welcomed the group led by AIC Board Chair Dr. Jennifer Lee and AIC Executive Director Dr. Jason Cheah.

Staff members of our senior division presented engaging snapshots of the comprehensive services for seniors that Felton provides. The delegation was particularly interested in learning more about
Felton’s Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, which they do not have in Singapore, but would like to start. They also had many questions about our Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs, as well as the integration of our mental health and aging services. We offered to support their efforts in starting programs like Felton’s and we look forward to this being a warm and wonderful start to an international collaboration.

Felton Institute was founded in 1889 with the mandate that children and families in crisis must have access to social services and resources in order to help them build upon their inherent strengths and develop self-sufficiency. Its name honors executive director Dr. Katharine “Kitty” Felton whose innovation at the turn of the 20th century greatly expanded social services throughout San Francisco and garnered national acclaim. For more than 127 years, Felton Institute has been a leader in innovative mental health and social service programs for all.
