Should I call before visiting my elderly relative?

Getting Together

Many aging folks and those with disabilities are housebound and lonely. Visiting a housebound person can be a wonderful gift to give.

The first connection with a shut-in should be one of friendship and support. It is best to always call before visiting. Respect your homebound friend by asking permission to visit, so as not to invade their space.
