Virus and Influenza
All of our volunteers are vaccinated. Our aim is to reduce person-to-person contact.
- Transport: Wear masks and the passenger rides in the rear seat opposite of the driver with diagonally opposite windows open to create an air curtain between driver and passenger. See article here.
- Home visits: Member and volunteer must wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.
Symptoms of COVID (if you have them) are easy to confuse with seasonal flu, allergies, and the common cold. If you have drippy nose or sneezes, test yourself. You are most contagious with COVID the day before you show symptoms.

TENT needs your help to help others.
Many elders in Taos have difficulty living alone without help. We are a community of elders and neighbors who will provide social contacts, transportation, minor home repairs, and caregiver relief. Would you like to help?
We have dozens of volunteers who have offered to provide transportation, social contact, minor home repairs, and caregiver relief.
Volunteers all have background screening and go through an orientation. We do not provide any medical services.
We started providing services in October 2018 and are always looking for new volunteers. Sign up here.

TENT is located on the land and territories of Indigenous peoples. Taos is the traditional homelands to Taos Pueblo, the Red Willow People. TENT respectfully acknowledges the original inhabitants of these lands where we live and work and recognizes both that they still reside in the area, and their continuing connection to land, waters, and community. We honor the impact of their wisdom, generosity, and sacrifice since time immemorial. We pay our respects to them and their culture and to Elders both past and present.
