Hoarding Requires the Help of an Entire Village

According to Valencia Hooper-Alexander, manager of the city’s senior services program, many people don’t know enough about hoarding disorder.  This mental condition affects more than 25,000 people in the city of Dallas and unfortunately affects more than just the person who has it. During Valencia’s presentation at the conference at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, she outlined how clutter can affect property values and create fire hazards that can endanger not only the hoarder himself but also the nearby properties.

In treating this mental condition, empathy and caring relationships are very important. It takes a village to help someone who suffers from hoarding disorder and any effort to educate the community is a step closer to getting the right help.

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!
