What Homebound really means?
A person who is homebound 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.
