What is homebound?

A person who is home bound may leave the home for medical and some non-medical reasons. Homebound does not mean the person must be confined to a bed or wheelchair, or even to his house, but rather, that the person requires assistance (human and/or a device) to leave his home, or leaving takes a considerable and taxing effort.

You must be homebound. This means that:

  • Leaving home is a major effort.
  • You are normally unable to leave home unassisted.
  • When you leave home, it must be to get medical care, or for short, infrequent non-medical reasons such as a trip to get a haircut, or to attend religious services or adult day care.
