    If you have other family members involved, or who should be, in getting an adult parent to address their hoarding, what is the biggest challenge you have had to date?

    • Ignoring/enabling was a long time problem, but as I mentioned , they are a family of multigenerational alcoholism so i’ve never had much in the way of expectations. my grandmother propped my mother up financially until she died in 2010. my aunt still does but to a much lesser extent. My aunt is pretty great with me, but still more of an enabler than i’d wish. My uncles pretend everything is fine. They know it isn’t but nobody cares much for reality if it means confrontation. so they avoid to keep peace.
