Do you have a family member or loved one who can’t seem to let go of their belongings? Hoarding can have more of an effect on your relationships than you may realize.
What starts out as a small collection of items can grow over time to become an overwhelming burden.
Clutter is one of the biggest contributors to tension within families of hoarders. Living space is lost or made non-functional because of clutter, which makes it difficult to relax and enjoy your home.
It may seem like discomfort is the biggest issue, but many other problems may arise because of hoarding. This can include the accumulation of dust, mildew or fungus because of difficulty with cleaning, which can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, or other health problems, and may encourage vermin to enter and live in the home.
If you are struggling with any or all of these issues, please register for our Hoarding Response talks on Thursdays September 15th, 22nd, and 29th from 6:30 – 8 pm. You will learn how loved ones are affected by hoarding, tips for improving communication with your loved one, what services are available for you in Guelph, and much more!
