Episode 3 - Hoarding
Show Notes

Hoarding is a condition that exists out of the public eye with people living in conditions that can be detrimental to their quality of health, both physically and mentally.

BCM operates two floating support projects for older people, one operating across the Greater Belfast area and one across the Southern Trust area and Newry. For this episode of Because Caring Matters we welcomed Catherine, project manager for the Belfast team, and Margaret, one of her support workers, into the studio to highlight the key issues around hoarding.

They are joined by Belfast-based social worker David McCann who works in partnership with the Belfast Housing Support team when referring older people living in the community who require that additional support.
