Seniors in Service of Tampa Bay, Inc.

Health Buddies volunteers provide support virtually until further notice due to COVID-19.

Health Buddies help reduce preventable hospital readmissions for individuals living with chronic conditions through combined in-home/telephone interventions that empower them to self-manage their health. Volunteers are trained to provide support to help clients live independently, with dignity.

Health Buddies serve Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco County at no charge to clients.
