Adult day care is an increasingly important service for dependent adults, and there is an established need for programs that are sensitive to the needs of diverse cultural groups. To provide culturally sensitive care in any setting caregivers must have substantial knowledge of factors influencing the caring beliefs and practices of clients and their families, and must use this knowledge in planning and implementing care. The purpose of this ethnographic study was to establish a knowledge base for a practice model of culturally congruent adult day care. The research questions addressed kinship, social, spiritial, and cultural factors that influence care expressions, patterns, and practices in adult day care centers. Data collection included two hundred hours of participant observation at two large adult day care centers and thirty-six ethnographic interviews with key and general informants. Raw data consisting of field notes and verbatim interview transcripts were coded, categorized into domains and taxonomies based on the research questions, and summarized in a cultural thematic analysis. The final analysis revealed many similarities in the kinship, social, spiritual, and cultural factors influencing the perceptions of caring among adult day care center clients, family members, staff members, and volunteers. The analysis also showed substantial congruence in the care expressions, patterns, and practices in the centers and clients' homes. The study findings provided the foundation for a practice model of culturally congruent adult day care and suggested possibilities for future research.
