|Summary:|| "Researchers have debated whether women in later life experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) are victims of IPV or elder abuse (EA). This study operates under the notion that women experiencing abuse by their partners are victims of IPV regardless of age. However, it is largely unknown if services for victims of IPV are appropriate across the lifespan. The current study addressed this gap by investigating how stage 1 transition homes in Atlantic Canada are meeting the needs of women in midlife and older." -- Abstract, p.3.
