Hoarding Disorder and Older Adults

This webinar will give a basic overview of hoarding disorder, aim to dispel myths, reduce stigma, and promote best practices. Although hoarding behaviors tend to start early in life, they usually become significantly more problematic in the middle to later years of life. The presenter will lay a foundation by providing up-to-date research on hoarding disorder, its impact on older adults, and suggestions for intervention.

Intended audience: This presentation is appropriate for all professionals working with older adults. It is also appropriate for educators, researchers, and students in the field of aging and anyone interested in hording disorder in older age.
