Senior Hoarding Challenges

Organized chaos, markers for memories, or a symptom of an unaddressed mental health issue? How much stuff is too much and what can caretakers do?  Following are some resources you may find useful.
 
http://www.nasmm.org/press/gcm_journal.pdf  “Rooms of Shame: Senior Move Manager’s Perspective on Hoarding”, in the Journal of Geriatric Care Management, April 2010. From the article: “Senior Move Managers encounter a significant number of hoarding situations, and as a result, many have developed expertise in working with elderly hoarders.”… expertise shared in this scholarly article. 
 
http://childrenofhoarders.com/wordpress/ Just as the site says, this is a support site for those coping with hoarding behavior by parents.
 
http://www.caregiverstress.com/aging/senior-hoarding/10-reasons-seniors-keep-stuff/ Part of a general site exploring issues of caregiving, this link breaks down some of the reasons for hoarding, perhaps creating for families a way to discuss the issues… this could be posted at your local senior center.
We are so very grateful for our many volunteers and good friends we have here at Metro-Erie Meals On Wheels.
