Buddy Program for Older LGBT Adults
Could you or someone you know benefit from the Buddy Program?
QSpot is proud to partner with Monmouth University on the Buddy Program for Older LGBT Adults. Created by Dr. Laura Kelly, the Buddy Program has been a part of Monmouth University’s Social Work and Nursing schools for many years. In September 2015, the program moved to QSpot and became a joint project of Monmouth University and QSpot with support from MU graduate students.
The Buddy Program provides companion visits to older members of the LGBT community who are alone, homebound, hospitalized or otherwise physically or socially isolated.
Buddies visit clients weekly to help them feel connected and assist with their needs like food shopping, doctor visits and other difficult tasks. The program also identifies additional resources needed and works to integrate them into care
