In this area, it seems unlikely that there could be problems like hoarding, but mental illness does not discriminate. While some homes may simply need a good de-clutter and cleaning, some need much deeper services. However, owning a lot of stuff does not make someone a hoarder.
There are three main characteristics of hoarding:
- Acquiring many useless objects and possessions that the owner cannot be convinced to discard. Examples of this would be junk mail, packaging containers, magazines, and lists of things long since accomplished. The owner will often cite the worry of needing them “someday.
- Areas in the home that can no longer be used for day-to-day living. Items may be piled ceiling high in living areas, bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. Appliances may be broken and unusable, and the home’s structure may be at risk.
- Significant distress in the affected individual. They may be unable to accomplish goals, finish tasks, or care for themselves, pets, or loved ones. Most of the time hoarders do not believe that they have too much stuff and it’s just that they haven’t found time to get it organized.
