The counseling opportunity for the health professional is generally referred to as the “home visit.” While the most valuable setting for assistance to the family is probably within the home setting, it should be recognized that other areas or settings can be utilized. Periodically, the telephone may be the only means of reaching the family. The decision as to where the counseling visit should take place rests with the family and the counselor. The counseling visit is an option for the family and may be refused by them. It is suggested that families in a period of grief do not always make appropriate decisions. Initial contact with the family in terms of determining a time and location should carry a positive and affirmative note from the counselor.
