Dinah,
You wrote,[...any thoughts...].
First, let me say that the situation that you are describing in the house causes me to be greatly concerned about you, for there is so much in your parents situation for one person to handle.
I am aquainted with this type of situation when you referr to the path left from the stacking of things in the house.
If I could make some type of contribution to what you are asking, it would be this:
I had this situation, almost like what you are describing and the friends of the family brought in a huge dumpster and removed evrything. The reason I am bringing this up is that by them doing that, a greater problem arose. You see, they did not understand the hording and the horder went into great agony because of the items removed. This removal of the items ,such as a towel, was not understood by the removers for the hoarder kept the towel as to have something to do with her mother and this caused some severe problems. I know that you know about this situation, but others may not.After all was removed, then the removers had to learn about OCD in relation to hoarding. It is not that simple to just call in a dumpster and have people throw out the piles of whatever and I belive that yuou are aware of that. My concern here is how can you handle this situation by yourself,and you wrote that [...you are going to call the primary...]which could be a good thing to do, but does the primary physition know about OCD in relation to hoarding?
Lou
