It is important to recognise the difference between someone who collects items and someone who hoards. For those who find it a challenge to throw every day items away, this can often be a sign of someone who is suffering with a hoarding disorder. Although many of us may struggle to let go of every day items (just in case we need it), when does it become an issue and when is it time to take action?
Hoarding is a very complex illness, those suffering with the disorder may often hide their hoarding well and it isn’t until they finally allow someone into the house that friends and family discover the true extent of the hoarding. It is important that to seek help and counselling especially if the home is not able to function how it should. If the clutter is preventing the person from being able to use their kitchen to prepare food and wash up afterwards; to use the bathroom facilities and from having a safe and comfortable area to sleep then their health is at serious risk.
