What Is Hoarding?

Hoarding is a serious disorder where a person experiences high levels of distress when they consider getting rid of or throwing away items that they own. This results in a large accumulation of items that are not necessary and can create an uncomfortable and often unsafe living space. This is often due to the fact that it can be difficult to maneuver around the home, furniture could be placed in an unsafe matter and could fall or tip over, and there are no clear exits in the event of an emergency.

What You Can Do If Someone You Know Is A Hoarder

Helping a person with a hoarding problem requires professional assistance. First Response’s dedicated hoarding professionals work to address the numerous complexities and seek to provide hoarding solutions with integrity, discretion and ethics at top of mind. These commitments have made us industry leaders and allowed us to partner with the Lanark County Hoarding Coalition and CMHA Champlain East in their pilot programs to help prevent homelessness due to hoarding disorder.

The process starts with a professional, consultative meeting to assess the condition of the structure and work to create a project plan that deals with clutter, garbage and the biohazards that often exist in hoarding situations. Working with the interested parties to achieve mutually agreed upon goals allows First Response to solve hoarding problems with the least amount of stress and additional trauma. If you, a family member or friend are struggling with a hoarding situation, speak with one of our experts today.
