In the United States, roughly four million people are confined to their home due to age, injury, illness, or physical or mental disability.
Long periods of confinement cause many homebound people to suffer from loneliness, depression, anxiety, isolation, contact deprivation, shame, grief and helplessness. Those who become homebound after a life of mobility struggle with dramatically reduced engagement in social, professional, and family circles. Often, the homebound also experience deep disappointment, particularly if someone is unable to visit or call, or an opportunity for an outing is cancelled.
With the dramatic shortage of health care providers who can deliver in-home care, the majority of homebound people cannot receive the counseling, therapy or any other therapeutic services they need to help them cope. For many, the absence of mental health services results in psychological decline.
