Based on the ideal of neighbor helping neighbor, the Chesed Project’s mission is to promote social, physical and emotional connection, and to support independence, interaction, and joy for all people over 60 years in Taos County. Facilitated by an amazing group of professional instructors who volunteer their time to teach classes such as Restorative Yoga, Reiki, and Rosen Method of Exercise, all contribute to increased mobility and energy, restored balance and reduced stress, providing tangible health and wellness benefits. We believe in successful aging and welcome all seniors to participate.
The Chesed Project’s goal is to improve quality of life by providing activities, which encourage our constituents to reach their full human and spiritual potential. We provide programs of song and dance, highlighting Taos’s rich musical traditions. Scrabble® players meet bi-monthly.
Chesed's award winning program Apoyos Para Los Cuidadores (support for the caregivers) offers a monthly support group for the caregivers of the memory-impaired; Artstreams: From the Well of Memory,* a monthly interactive art discussion for the memory impaired and their caregivers that takes place at the Harwood Museum, the Millicent Rogers Museum, and the Taos Fire Department Firehouse Art Collection; and a Resource Library that provides education and information on age related issues.
