Hi Dinah,

Think of talking to the doctor as tough love. Your parents need it.

I think clearing out the newspaper and other clutter now is far better than later. My late mother-in-law was a hoarder, not to the extreme your mother seems to be, but pretty bad. The sad thing about hoarders is eventually someone has to go through their stuff and deal with it. We went through my mother-in-laws stuff because my father-in-law couldn't do it. It's hard, but, Dinah, someone has to do it. If your brother doesn't understand why, he needs to carefully look at how your parents are living and ask himself if its really to their benefit.

I'm sending a giant can of parent monster spray via cyber space. Use it as air freshener.

Let us know what the doc says after he talks to your mother.

Poet
