Abstract

Chinese-Americans are the largest group of Asian Americans. Home care providers in the United States will encounter patients with various levels of traditional Chinese lifestyles, cultural expressions, and health practices. A description of how to prepare for and conduct a home care visit with a patient from China is described. This article integrates recent research about Chinese-American elders and basics of Chinese culture to assist healthcare clinicians in providing supportive, culturally sensitive home care for Chinese patients and developing rapport and trust with them.
