The findings allowed the identification of potentialities and frailties in the context of family home care and subsidizing the construction of a theoretical scheme resulting from the analysis of possibilities of the nursing care practice according to the culture, through the three modes of action: maintenance, adjustment and repatterning of cultural care.

Final considerations:

Respecting the cultural values and family beliefs, the nurse can help to institute mutually established changes, promoting a better quality in the nursing care relationship and a relief to the strain of the role of the caregiver.
