SCVTV's Community Corner | SCVTV’s Community Corner: SCV Senior Center’s Resources for Elderly, Caregiver Mental Health Care Support
There’s no doubt that the older we get, the more our physical health becomes a priority; but what about our mental health?
In this segment of SCVTV’s Community Corner, Etta Martin from the SCV Senior Center sheds some light on the mental health concerns affecting our elderly community and their caregivers.
The elderly and the caregiver community face a different set of mental health concerns; both are in need of support that helps ensure they are able to continue living a healthy and happy life.
Etta Martin helps facilitate multiple support groups that give the elderly and their caregivers the opportunity to process difficult emotions or to find community with each other.

Mental health issues can affect anyone at any age but it’s important to know that there’s a support system out there to help everyone live a happy and healthy life all year long.
