You enter your dad’s home and can’t believe
the stacks of stuff that have accumulated on every flat surface: piles
of newspapers and mail everywhere, the medicine cabinet overflowing with
10 years’ worth of hair spray (despite his being bald), heaps of dirty
laundry on the bed so there is no place for him to sleep. You wonder how
it got this bad.
A lifetime accumulation of possessions
combined with a daily influx of junk mail, bills and newspapers can
quickly overwhelm seniors who may already be struggling physically,
mentally or emotionally.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
