Health Buddies is a program administered by Seniors in Service of Tampa Bay.
Its mission is to reduce preventable hospital readmissions for individuals living with a chronic illness through telephone interventions. (Chronic illnesses addressed by the Health Buddies program include, but are not limited to stroke, cancer, heart problems, mood disorders and more.) Volunteers in the Health Buddies program are background checked, and trained to empower these individuals to self-manage their health and thus continue to live independently.
