This group is underway and no longer accepting registrations. Please check back in September for upcoming programs.
Please note residents (age 60+ or a caregiver of someone age 60+) of the following towns are eligible to participate: Braintree, Cohasset, Hingham, Holbrook, Hull, Milton, Norwell, Quincy, Randolph, Scituate, and Weymouth.
This group is for seniors (age 60+) who are seeking a boost to their decluttering efforts. If home safety is a concern due to an overabundance of clutter or a living environment is stressful due to clutter, please join us!
Over 8 weeks, we'll read portions of the book Buried in Treasures which provides insight into hoarding and clutter and how to manage the problem. Participants will receive coaching and help with goal setting to reduce clutter while enjoying the mutual support of a small group.
This group will run run for 8 sessions, with a trained clinician. The group will meet weekly (Wednesdays from 6:30PM-8:00PM).
Participants will be asked to complete a pre- and post-group assessment (to assess experiences with clutter) via phone interview. Seats are limited and a waiting list will be kept in the event that additional spaces open up.
This group is sponsored by the Scituate Hoarding Response Team in partnership with Boston University School of Social Work and with generous support from South Shore Elder Services.
