This is Part Two of a two-part series about Anticipating the Unexpected: Home Visiting With Diverse Families. Home care and hospice personnel must be sensitive to the culture of each family they encounter and look for ways to honor diverse, and perhaps unusual, family situations as long as the home environment is safe. As "safe" can be broadly interpreted, this practical course will present patient care scenarios, decision-making practices, and resources that assist home care and hospice personnel in incorporating family into the plan of care and in responding to unexpected occurrences in the home.
