  • The home healthcare nurse who cares for persons with Greek ancestry should be aware of their unique cultural heritage. The nurse should also be aware that Greek people throughout the world are proud and independent, valuing their religious faith and practices, good health, education, and success. Care should be designed to include appreciation of traditions and customs that these clients may have. The nurse should make a special effort to develop trust with the Greek client and family members in order to effectively implement culturally competent healthcare.
