Rationale:
1. The communication between those providing care and the family is of primary importance. The family needs to know how their loved one is progressing and needs frequent updates.
2. The family needs to know the purpose of the activities surrounding their loved one. Many interventions are frightening and rationales help the family to cope.
3. Easy access to food is not generally the most important concern of the family.
4. A comfortable place to stay is not generally the most important concern of the family.
5. Social service information about insurance and payment may be of great importance later in the hospitalization, but currently the family is focused on the client's condition.
