If he is on medicaid, he may very well qualify for homecare services. If he was a veteran, his homecare services would be covered under Aid and Attendance. The question does not give enough information to give direct advice.

When my dad had Meals on Wheels it was for 'home bound' people.....with the exception of Dr.'s appointments, church, and hospital stays.

Lots of people don't have cars, but are not home-bound. If they are routinely going out, even with others driving, they are not home bound. In home services are ordered by his MD, who makes the determination of need.
