The results showed (1) there was a positive correlation between care knowledge, attitudes and technical skills of foreign caregivers, care knowledge and attitudes (r = .17, p > .05), care attitudes and behavior (technical skills) (r = .47, p < .01), and care knowledge and behavior (technical skills) (r = .37, p < .01), and (2) factors, such as the educational level of foreign care, the age of care, the experience of care, and the ability to communicate in Mandarin affected differently in care knowledge, attitudes and technical skills.
