Hoarding disorder is when an individual begins to start collecting an excessive number of objects and items in rooms in a manner that is chaotic which will always lead to an unmanageable amount of clutter. The items that they will collect can have no monetary value. A large amount of clutter due to hoarding can interfere with a person’s everyday living which can affect their physical and mental well-being. Some people may not realise they are showing hoarding behaviours and can be reluctant to seek out help for their clutter due to shame but it’s really important that you seek help for yourself or a loved one if you are hoarding.
Hoarding disorder can be extremely psychological and it must be treated with care. First, start by asking how the person is currently feeling and how they have been doing as we can sometimes be caught up in everyday life that we forget what they need. You should take baby steps in empowering them to make the decisions and make sure that they are leading their progress as you can’t force someone to do something.
