How to Help Seniors with Hoarding Problems

The next time you visit an older parent or senior, take a good look around their home for signs of clutter or untidiness. Hoarding is a behavioral disorder characterized by extreme clutter in a home that negatively impacts a person’s quality of life. Hoarding may not seem dangerous, but it can cause major problems — especially for vulnerable people such as seniors.

Senior Humor


A woman reported, "I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.

I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.

I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.

But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over."
