How to Help a Hoarder Loved One

Sharing a home with a hoarder is not easy. It takes some people a while to realize that their nagging will never work with a person having the disorder, and even once they’ve made the realization, they may still take unnecessary and counterproductive steps to put an end to the latter’s behavior.

There are a number of things that you should remember when it comes to dealing with a hoarder. For one thing, having someone to help, whether its a professional or a good friend, is always better than dealing with the situation on your own. Of course, you have to consider your loved one’s disposition before taking major actions to address his condition.
Also keep in mind that trying to do everything for the person, including always tidying up after him, can simply put a toll to his recovery. Letting him know that you’re by his side and helping him make small but obtainable goals, on the other hand, can encourage him to take little but sure steps to getting better.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
