Hoarding and hoarding-related issues pose extreme challenges in senior care and housing settings, where providers tend to do everything possible to help their residents successfully maintain quality, safe housing rather than consider the possibility of eviction. LeadingAge Washington member Senior Housing Assistance Group (SHAG) accepted a LeadingAge Innovations Fund grant to develop an Eviction Diversion Program in collaboration with The Hoarding Project, a Seattle-based nonprofit organization focused on supporting individuals and organizations affected by hoarding disorder. During the year-long pilot program, SHAG helped 15 older adults with hoarding issues avoid eviction from their housing communities.
Who Should Attend: elderly | health & wellness
- Discuss hoarding and its relationship to housing
- Understand the most effective approaches to different types of hoarding/housekeeping behaviors
- Examine lessons learned from the pilot project that you can apply in your community
