Lynn, Massachusetts, May 2, 2019 – Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) and North Shore Elder Services are jointly sponsoring a 5-week program for “Family and Family of Clutterers.” The group meetings will begin on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, and will run for five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7:00–8:30 p.m. Sessions will be held at Calvary Christian Church, 47 Grove Street, Lynnfield, MA.
“This program is for people who have family members or friends who find themselves with too many things and are having difficulty sorting through or getting rid of unneeded possessions,” says Martindale, who oversees the Hoarding Outreach program at GLSS. “In many cases, the possessions affect their overall quality of life and well-being and have a negative impact on their ability to live safely or function in their home environment.” The program will help friends and family learn better ways of communicating and supporting their loved ones.
