Hoarding as a definition simply means “to accumulate,” although the practice of hoarding and the real world implications of living with this disorder, and in the midst of it, is not that simple. Issues with health – both physical and mental, society, friends and family, and overall quality of life are all affected by hoarding. Both the people who hoard, and those that live with them, carry the burdens of the disease.

Hoarding is a DSM 5 mental health disorder, meaning it is recognized in the medical and mental health community as such. See definition:  http://www.compulsive-hoarding.org/Definition.html
