Homebound

What is Homebound?

Homebound meaning

To be homebound means:

  • You have trouble leaving your home without help (like using a cane, wheelchair, walker, or crutches; special transportation; or help from another person) because of an illness or injury, or
  • Leaving your home isn’t recommended because of your condition, and you’re normally unable to leave your home because it’s a major effort

You may leave home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, like attending religious services. You can still get home health care if you attend adult day care.
