Growing up our house was lived in but not stacked up. Mom has started keeping things in her bedroom (her brother and his wife lives with her as her caretakers) so that no one throws "HER" things away. So she has piles of newspapers , magazines, food, books and I don't know what else. My youngest sister has been helping to clean her room every couple of months. But it is starting to really get out of control. She has a small path and that is all. I don't understand why she is doing that. My Aunt and Grandmother also did this when they were alive, they also had Alzheimer's. Any suggestions on how to help her not to do this?
