ILS is also continuing to partner with home and community-based service providers to deliver services designed to improve social determinants of health (SDOH) including nutritious food, safe housing, and reliable transportation for at-risk populations. Focusing on SDOH is critically important to one’s ability to live independently and age in place.
“Our mission from the beginning has been to make people’s lives better by improving the quality of care for at-risk populations including seniors and those in underserved communities,” added Plana.
