The Northwest Métis Women’s Health Research Project investigated the health care
needs of elderly women and their caregivers in the Métis community of Buffalo
Narrows, Saskatchewan. The research project looked at access to home care and longterm
care services for elderly women in the particular demographic, social, cultural and
economic context of northern Métis communities. The goal of the project was to
recommend appropriate home care and long term care policies for northern Métis
communities and to ensure that these policies will be responsive to women’s needs as
care recipients, care providers and caregivers. By looking at the specific needs of
women, the research project hoped to raise awareness of gender as an important factor to
consider in developing and implementing policies related to care of the elderly.
