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.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, May 2004: The Canadian health care system is undergoing steady change, but one thing that remains constant is the key role that women play in providing care. Women are estimated to comprise nearly 80% of both the paid and unpaid care workers in this country. Yet, their numbers do not coincide with their influence. Government reforms such as the introduction of market systems in health care may result in some cost efficiencies, but not necessarily better working conditions for those who care, much less better care for those who need it. Similarly, the increasing transfer of patients into community care may mean that individuals are able to convalesce in more familiar surroundings and with the people they love. But the added burden on family members - usually women - may mean forgone paid work, not to mention changes in personal relationships between those who care and those who are cared for and about.
