The *police* cannot order someone to not go into their own home: they do not have the legal authoritity to exclude or bar someone from that person's own property. Only if there is an actual court order (such as a restraining order or protective order) requiring him to stay away would he not be allowed into his own house...and yes, a restraining order can legally bar you from your own property, though you can challenge it in court; and being disabled does make you exempt from court orders.
