BUDDY PROGRAM AT HOSPITALS AND HOME

The Buddy Program is offered in Athens and Thessaloniki and includes home and hospital visits to people living with HIV/AIDS.

The service is free of charge, confidential and respectful towards HIV+ people. It is offered by trained volunteers of the Centre for Life with the support of the scientific personnel.

The program includes:

  • Home visits to patients, due to their compromised state of health, who seek companionship and/or house support. The volunteers can keep them company or help them run errands, for example shopping, doctor visits, etc.
  • Hospital visits, during hospitalization period, for any patient seeking companionship and/or support

If you need support from the Buddy Program, contact the Head of Volunteer Services through Centre of Life’s phone numbers.

The Buddy Program is carried out thanks to the valuable contribution of the volunteers and the cooperation of the medical and nursing personnel of the hospitals that we visit.
