Bourne Health Department Learns about Hoarding Issues

cluttered homeBourne Health Agent Cynthia Coffin and Health Inspector Carrie Furtek attended a session conducted by the Mid-Cape Hoarding Task Force. The meeting included a film about hoarding, the mental health issues involved, and the possible risks or dangers that a situation can present to the property, owner, and the neighborhood.

According to Coffin, hoarding has become a recognizable problem on a wider scale that you can’t just go inside the property clean it up and let the person go back in. “They’ll just start all over again”, Coffin said.

Coffin said family members, perhaps from the next generation, could provide assistance to deal with a hoarding issue that gets out of control.

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!
