Consider my suggestion for a map, and perhaps even frame it and hang it on her wall for her...

Hoarders need to know what they are up against in case of fire... My WWII pilot friend, put a ladder attached to outside of his bedroom with plumber's tape just as a precaution...

He's embarrassed to let anybody see his lifestyle and his doorbell doesn't have a button, so he has a short stick of pipe folks use to bang on a "pipe" that goes through the wall into the kitchen to make a hell of a racket...

One time 4 or 5 years back when he didn't answer the "pipe" nor his telephone, some neighbor friends used his ladder to see if he was still moving... He opened his bedroom to see what all the ruckus was...

That one turned out OK... He doesn't drink or smoke, but he is a "textbook" case for Gambler's Anonymous... His daughter sends him money every month; guess where that goes... Yep, Texas Holdem and Puy Gow...
