When you or a family member is struggling to cope and there is a compulsion to collect items and not throw anything away, or perhaps more items are being brought into the home every day, help is at hand.
Cardea Home Support have launched a Compulsive Hoarding and Decluttering service. This specialist service aims to help people get back in control of their lives, gain space at home and improve their health and wellbeing.
Lesley Shenton, Cardea General Manager says, ‘We know that tackling hoarding behaviour can reduce isolation and improve health and wellbeing for people in this situation. Our staff are experienced in supporting people in their own homes, and can cope with a wide range of situations in a non-judgemental way.
We know for some, taking the first steps to deal with hoarding can be difficult, but our work is based around supporting people to make positive steps to improve their home life and to reduce risks to themselves and others’. If the tendency to collect ‘stuff’ is there, the specialist Cardea team can provide advice and assistance regardless of how serious the situation has become.
