The Mission of the Taos County Senior Program is to Improve and Enhance the Quality of Life for Older Persons Who Live in Our Community. The Mission Statement would not be possible without the dedication of the many volunteers who willingly give their time to make our senior centers a place to be proud of.
Count your life by smiles not tears. Count your age by friends, not years.
Our nutrition services assist older Americans to live independently by promoting better health through improved nutrition and reduced isolation through a program coordinated with other supportive services.
As outlined in the Older Americans Act, the intent of this service is to:
1. Reduce hunger and food insecurity;
2. Promote socialization of older individuals; and
3. Promote the health and well-being of older individuals to gain access to nutrition and other disease prevention and health promotion services to delay the onset of adverse health conditions resulting from poor nutritional health or sedentary behavior.
