In this PhD study, we will explore the unmet social and healthcare needs of older people in Finland. We aim to reveal how unmet social care needs are associated with mortality, the use of home care and institutionalization in later life. We also aim to provide insights on risk factors linked to unmet needs.

This study is part of two projects: 1) the Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia (CAIDE) study, with longitudinal data on health status, lifestyle, cognition, physical functioning, mood and biomarkers; 2) the Old-age Social Exclusion in Home Care – Prevalence, Meanings & Intervention (SOLDEX) project, examining the prevalence, risk factors and individual meanings of social exclusion in home-care clients.
