as children. I understand why she hoards but cannot convince her to let me help even though she admits that I respect her things. She is 83 but was already hoarding when my father died 7 months ago. The situation is much worse now. I am worried about fire and her falling over something. None of my siblings live nearby and ignore the chaos when they come.She is clean and her bathrooms are clean. She rarely uses her kitchen. I am at a loss as to what to do. The house is huge(6 bedrooms), but she is about to run out of room. Has anyone else found a way to help a parent who hoards? Thank you!
