Introducing Senior Wellness on Health Buddy
The Senior Wellness function on the Health Buddy app is designed to equip seniors like yourself (and your caregivers) with tools to better manage mental wellness and stay healthy so you can age gracefully and independently.
As this information is provided by healthcare professionals, you can be assured that it is advice you can trust.
The Senior Wellness functionality was developed by the

Features of Senior Wellness include:
