During Wednesday’s live discussion, 32 attendees talked about the “emotional tug-of-war” that can happen between a caregiver (or caring family member) who is trying to help a hoarder, the “save everything” mentality that many Depression-era seniors possess, and the importance of recognizing that filling a dumpster doesn’t always solve the deeper issue.
Discussion questions are embedded in the highlights below:

Don’t miss our next #ElderCareChat: Wednesday, May 5th at 1pm ET. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. Anyone who is interested in and passionate about eldercare issues can join our chat, anytime. Prior participation is not required, nor is there a need to stay for the full hour. Topic: TBA; Denise Brown (@caregiving) will lead the conversation.
If the “real-time” frame doesn’t sync with your schedule, or if you feel that your question or idea requires well beyond 140 characters, start a discussion thread on our LinkedIn page or use the #eldercarechat hashtag. The LinkedIn group is also a great place to continue previous discussions, connect with those who share similar interests, or talk about the services that you, or the company you represent, have to offer.
