Hoarding, or compulsive hoarding disorder, is when a person accumulates materials and items to the point where living conditions become dangerous, and a health hazard. (Sources: SeniorsFirstBC).

Hoarding can affect any age, but it is most common in people over 50, and is often linked to individuals who have been diagnosed with ADHD, dementia and Alzheimer’s (Source: SeniorsFirstBC).
