HOW TO HELP A LOVED ONE WITH A HOARDING PROBLEM

This is a very sensitive and delicate matter and should be treated as one.  You need to realize first and foremost that Hoarding is not a choice one choses, it is a direct result of something bigger.  Something bigger than you may not even understand. Generally the behavior is triggered by a trauma, the loss of a loved one, pet, job, etc. or a variety of mental health issues.


Hoarding is also associated with OCD and may just be the direct result of why they hoard. They simply can’t control their need to hold onto things and may actually suffer acute anxiety whenever they try to throw anything away including items that are useless or should be in the trash.


When you understand just how much a person who hoards suffers mentally, you are more inclined to treat them with understanding and compassion.

You also need to understand that someone who hoards may need the help of a mental health professional while going through the clean up process to help them deal with the frightening negative feelings that getting rid of some of their possessions may cause.

We never force a client to get rid of anything they don't want to. We work with them directly through the entire process.  Some are ready to take this step, some only think they are, and some simply are not.  We are here to help, not cause further mental duress.
