Rising Stars Cleaning recently visited a male who is suffering from hoarding disorder to see how he is living and how they might be able to help him overcome his disorder.
Here is a quick extract from their article:
“It’s a normal busy day in the office and the last thing on the list to do is to provide a quote for a housing association. I met with the housing officer and we left out to view the property together. The officer advised me that they have a tenant who has an issue with hoarding.
We arrive on the 15th floor and there is a poignant smell floating on the landing. The officer knocks with hesitation and someone answers. Peering around the door is a small scruffy but warm in character man. As soon as he appeared to gain us entry he was gone.”
