IAWW SENIORS PROGRAM
The IAWW Seniors Program, a non-profit organization, was started in 1997 as part of the India Association of Western Washington (IAWW). This is the only program serving the Asian Indian Seniors in the State of Washington. Its participants are retired, or of retirement age (or younger who have aging relatives and friends), and are interested in the activities and events relevant to the seniors.
Our Mission is: "To provide and facilitate civic, recreational, cultural and educational services and opportunities for cultural integration to the elders of the community."
Since its inception in 1997, the Seniors Program has evolved into a very active organization within IAWW and provides the following programs:
• Annual Health Fair (started in 1998)
• Biannual Music Programs (started in 1998)
• Day Field Trips and Senior Picnic/Walk (started in 2000)
• Monthly Lunch Program (started in 2001)
• Annual Grandchildren's Program (started in 2004)
• Crafts Bazaar, Flea Market and other fun activities (started in 2004)
Additionally, we hold workshops on senior-related services such as Medicare, Social Security, Prescription Drug Programs, Nutrition, etc. We also provide resources for the elderly through liaison with CMS Centers for Medicare and Medicaid), SSA (Social Security Administration), SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors), KCSS (King County Senior Services), and NAPCA (National Asian Pacific Center on Aging).
