Tips on How to Battle Hoarding

Culpeper County Emergency Services Lt. Bill Ooten was one of the three featured speakers at a seminar last week on late life hoarding. The group who hosted the seminar, Culpeper Committee of Aging Together, offered the class in order to help not only the elderly but also young adults to deal with hoarding disorder.

–          Do not attempt a surprise clean up when trying to help a hoarder.

–          Recruit volunteers to help out in cleaning a hoarder’s home.

–          Be supportive and praise the hoarder more often instead of belittling 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!
