It is always hard to lose your loved one, especially if we are talking about a hoarder. And on the top of it, family has to clean out the house after his death. They usually don’t know where to begin and how to deal with emotional pain that is related to that job. It is difficult knowing that your family member or a friend lives amongst clutter while avoiding the harmful physical trauma, but it’s even harder when he is gone and you are left with emotional trauma and in charge of the deceased estate in Canberra.
People with hoarding disorder excessively collect things that normal people would consider worthless. They can’t get rid of their possessions, which lead to clutter that disrupts their ability to use their living spaces.
Hoarding is not the same thing as collecting. Collectors look for specific items, such as cars or stamps. They usually organize them well and are proud of having them. On the other hand, people with hoarding disorder collect random things and store them. They usually do it because they think they may need them in the future or that those things might have some sentimental value for them. Hoarders also usually feel safer when they are surrounded with things.
Hoarding disorder can cause a lot of problems in almost all areas of life, in social and work activities, in families and with friends. There are also health and safety concerns. Hoarders are usually not able to perform some daily tasks, like cooking or taking a bath.
