The Council on Aging and The Cambridge Hoarding Coalition provides community education, training for service providers and a resource list for clients, providers, and the community.
We also work to establish and maintain a hoarding response mechanism.
Our primary focus is the senior population of Cambridge (60+).
We can also act as a community resource for those under 60.
Join us as we learn more about hoarding and the people affected by it.
We will begin with a brief Hoarding 101, followed by a film that documents a family’s struggles to solve the problems associated with severe hoarding.
My Mother’s Garden is an emotionally charged documentary that addresses many of the complex issues that affect not just the person described as a hoarder but the entire community.
Following the film there will be a discussion facilitated by Sarah Dowal, MSW, MPH.
