Safer Spaces: Hoarding Support

Safer Spaces: Hoarding Support at VHA Home HealthCare

For people experiencing hoarding disorder, home can become an unsafe living space and present serious health risks. Individuals may withdraw from social interactions with family and friends, straining relationships and amplifying feelings of isolation. Many are reluctant to seek help due to shame, denial, or fear of judgment. This can delay intervention and treatment, allowing the disorder to worsen.

The good news is that hoarding disorder is a condition that can be managed. VHA provides non-judgmental, compassionate support for those experiencing hoarding tendencies. Our Safer Spaces: Hoarding Support service helps individuals regain control of their homes and their lives.

I wanted to reduce the size of my hoard. I’ve managed to do a lot thanks to the hoarding classes provided by VHA. I've met like-minded people, gained insight into strategies that can help and learned valuable lessons. The classes have been very helpful.
