Felton Institute had the honor of hosting a delegation from Taiwan this summer at our Sutter Street office in San Francisco. We used the opportunity to showcase our senior services and commitment to wellness care for all ages.

Felton President and CEO Al Gilbert and Senior Services Division Director Cathy Spensley kicked it off with a welcome and presentation of gifts, including Felton swag and local treats.

Amy Yu, Director of Workforce and Engagement Services, followed up with a presentation on Felton’s older adult programs that support job training and employment for seniors. The presentation ended with an introduction to our Tech Squad program by Tieu Ly in Mandarin.

We express our gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the Korean and Taiwanese Delegations for joining us!
