SDOH and the Aging Population
Individuals who have positive social, economic, and environmental exposures, or whose basic needs are met, are more likely to be in better health and maintain good health in the long term.

Alternatively, those who struggle with Social Determinants Of Health (SDOH)-related factors are at greater risk of poor health, morbidity and mortality. For older adults in particular, SDOH-related factors can have significant implications for their ability to live independently and age in place.
