The Power of Communication in Battling Compulsive Hoarding

In an old American study, it was concluded that people experiencing compulsive hoarding avoid engaging with people who try to help them, find it difficult to maintain a clean and clutter-free environment, and lack sufficient understanding of their condition. However, an article from compulsivehoardingproject.com argues that the findings in this research maybe largely outdated, and provides tips on better addressing the condition of a hoarder:

  • Communicate with him in a compassionate manner.
  • Help him realize the wrong in his behavior.
  • Ask him about his goals and how he expects to attain them.

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!
