WHAT IS DIOGENES SYNDROME?
Every person reacts to stress differently. Patients with Diogenes Syndrome hold it inwards until it begins to manifest through the most severe type of hoarding. Many people think that helping a patient with Diogene Syndrome can be impossible but it is not. The people that suffer the most from Diogenes are the hoarders themselves.
Diogenes patients typically are extremely intelligent and are in their middle ages. They lack trust in other people, even their own family members. They become very isolative in their own homes. They hoard everything including trash and it becomes very unsanitary. Their home becomes a wasteland with no organization and filled with decay.
DIOGENES SYNDROME SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Patients diagnosed with Diogenes Syndrome experience severely deteriorated mental health that often causes them to live in isolation. The disorder is characterized by a deteriorated quality of life that is a result of extreme self-neglect. Diogenes Syndrome sufferers often compulsively collect and show symptoms of syllogomania. Because they cut themselves off from social interaction, it is often difficult for sufferers to get help.
Patients exhibit intense distrust for others that results in self-isolation. Often they obsessively hoard trash and other items, causing the sufferer to live in squalor. Clinically, this is referred to as Senile Squalor Syndrome. They end up with extreme depression, withdrawal and apathy towards their quality of life.
The home of a Diogenes Syndrome sufferer can have physical destruction, but it does not end there. What is more alarming is the mental destruction to the patient. Because they have completely cut themselves off from society, finding them treatment can prove to be quite challenging. Oftentimes, by the time others have become aware of their advanced state, they have become completely catatonic. Treating Diogenes sufferers requires a great deal of tact, knowledge and professionalism.
DIOGENES SYNDROME SOLUTION
Approaching Diogenes patients embodies all our core values. Even so, we approach these patients with extra special precautions because we know how delicate these types of situations can be.
Instead of swooping in with a crew and trying to organize their house, we come in and slowly earn their trust before any cleaning is done whatsoever. As long as progress is made, it can be slow and steady. Once trust is built and we convince them we are there to help, we can start the cleaning process. This process, coupled with mental health treatment, the Diogenes patient is on the road toward recovery.
