During recent decades in Finland, immigrant care professionals with different backgrounds and from diverse cultural origins, including those from Islamic cultures, have been engaged in care-providing services. Their engagement causes multiple interactions at different levels, both between themselves and between caregivers and care receivers. The Muslim women caregivers that strictly hold to Islamic values in providing caregiving services sometimes find it difficult to cope with the practices held by care service institutions. In this article, we consider the experiences of Muslim women care professionals with regard to their adhering to cultural practices at work.
