  • The person’s doctor believes that their health or illness could get worse if they leave the home.
  • The person requires the help of another person and/or medical equipment to leave the home, or finds it difficult to leave the home and typically cannot do so.
  • The person is served by a home health care organization.

  • The person is physically or intellectually disabled.
