Older adults who are homebound are often socially isolated, have unmet care needs, and suffer high mortality—and being homebound is not uncommon. In 2011, data showed that more older adults were homebound than living in nursing homes. This Quick Take will highlight the epidemiology and characteristics of homebound older adults, a population often invisible to society, and discuss why funders should include the homebound in their efforts to advance health care equity.

This session was designed by Grantmakers In Health and supported by Grantmakers In Aging.
