The Battle Buddy Program is the foundation of all Hero’s Bridge efforts. It recognizes the strong bond between younger and older veterans. Each war is different but the effects on the individual transcends time and generations. No one understands veterans and their profound stressors more than other veterans. The Battle Buddy Program pairs elderly veterans with a dedicated younger veteran trained using the rapidly growing Community Health Worker philosophy, to provide direct in-home services. A thorough Quality of Life assessment is performed, and personalized frequency of visits established. Referrals will be made to the other programs of Hero’s Bridge®, VA benefits and community partners to meet needs and “bridge” the elderly veteran to a healthier, more supported existence. This measurably improves quality of life and simultaneously provides the younger veteran a marketable skill in healthcare.
