Bedridden is a condition wherein a person is already confined to stay on his or her bed for a prolonged period of time. There are various reasons that can make a person bedridden. Some become bedridden because of an injury. Some may only become bedridden for a while but will regain their strength again after they get better.

Some get bedridden and remain that way until the day that they die. Some become bedridden because of old age. They are unable to move anymore because they are too weak. People who are bedridden usually have some people who are taking care of them. Sometimes it is their family members, and other times, they are being cared for by professionals.
