A patient scoring 100 BI is continent, feeds himself, dresses himself, gets up out of bed and chairs, bathes himself, walks at least a block, and can ascend and descend stairs. This does not mean that he is able to live alone: he may not be able to cook, keep house, and meet the public, but he is able to get along without attendant care.

Buenas tardes, interpreto que puede ser "reunirse con otras personas". ¿Es correcta mi interpretación? Es para Argentina.

salir de casa solo/a


Explanation:
Dado que la escala parece medir el nivel de dependencia/independencia de la persona, yo me decantaría por "salir de casa solo/a" (que es lo que creo que quiere decir, leyendo entre líneas).

relacionarse con extraños


Explanation:
También puede que se refiera a relacionarse socialmente con gente que no conoce.

Reference information:
The husband was physically unable to do even the light work, and became increasingly nervous so that he was unable to meet the public. The claimant quit her employment to move the husband to a place where he would not be disturbed by the public. In holding the claimant eligible for benefits, the Board stated:

"The evidence established that this claimant's husband was suffering from a serious illness which rendered him unable to perform services required of him and which necessitated his removal from a place where he must meet the public.
