A lack of help and increasing dysfunction is the reality for many Australians. Even the most essential things become hard to access, basic medical care is beyond reach because their physical attendance is required. This is a real state for many people. This is the unseen reality that Frail, homebound, and bedridden people faces every day.
Being frail, homebound, and bedridden means being trapped and unable to leave home. But it doesn't have to be this way! Together, we can make a difference for these Australians.
They are just like anyone of us, our family, and our friends. Anyone can have a change in circumstances and so become frail, homebound, or bedridden.
They need social and health inclusion programs, care, love, and support, like the rest of us.
They do not want to stay trapped and unseen. Before their health issues, they were active members of the community, working as entrepreneurs, doctors, musicians, defence personnel, dancers, students and much more.
They need to be treated with dignity, respect and deserve inclusion opportunities adapted to their circumstances.
Bring light to frail, homebound and bedridden people by sharing this information. They deserve to be highlighted and included, like the rest of us.
