I think the house is unlivable. But by hoarder standards, it probably isn't as bad as some. Piles of stuff everywhere with corridors to walk through. I try as hard as I can to make sure the outside is within codes and not going to get fined, and I don't even succeed at that. Legal proceedings to have her declared incompetent would eat up everything either of us has. Neither of us have much money. I concentrate on making sure she has someplace to live.
My uncle is living with her. He lives on a sofa in one of the narrow corridors through the living room. I am not as good as I should be in helping her or checking up on her. I get too upset at what I feel responsible for, but have no power to affect.
