All eligible NWT residents should register to get an NWT Health Care Card. It is important that you carry your health care card with you at all times. You may be asked to show it when you visit a doctor’s office, hospital or health centre.
Long Term Care facilities provide a wide range of personal support, physical, social and mental health services to individuals who require a high level of assistance. Facilities are designed for individuals who are no longer able to live independently in their own homes or with family, and require on-site supervision in a safe setting.
