People can become confined to their home for many reasons: sickness, recovery from surgery, chronic illness, disability and even weather. With limited access to the outside, a person’s world can shrink considerably and create a disconnect from people and the community. To help a homebound friend or relative stay engaged in life, you can:
• Plan to call or visit when you are not rushed for time.
• Arrange a regular date to get together.
• Encourage the person to express emotions and to listen.
