We assist with the physical aspect of dealing with a hoarding situation, while also maintaining sensitivity to the emotions of the client.
Many people in our society today know someone or they themselves are hoarders. Hoarding is not due to poor organization or laziness, it is a complex anxiety disorder that makes it difficult for a person to discard or part with possessions, regardless of actual value. Hoarders may feel the item will be useful one day or feel sentimental about it. Many have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and often only after other family members become involved, is the issue addressed. In addition to excessive clutter, other serious effects of compulsive hoarding can include fire or health hazards and infestations. It may also become impossible to prepare or eat food in the home or to have appliance, electrical or plumbing repairs conducted because technicians cannot enter the home.
