- Hoarding Symptom Severity as Measured by the Saving Inventory-Revised (SI-R) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Hoarding symptom severity (primary outcome) will be measured using the Savings Inventory-Revised (SI-R), a 23-item self-report measure used to assess common hoarding symptoms. Subtests include excessive clutter, compulsive acquisition, and difficulty discarding. The SI-R has demonstrated good internal consistency, divergent validity, concurrent validity, divergent validity, test-retest reliability in clinical samples with hoarding. The total score will be used for analyses. The range of the total score is 0-92, with higher scores indicating worse hoarding severity.
- The Activities of Daily Living in Hoarding (ADL-H) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]The Activities of Daily Living in Hoarding (ADL-H) was used to assess functional impairment. Higher scores represent increased impairment. Mean score is 1-75, with higher scores indicating worse impairment due to hoarding.
- Executive Functioning as Measured by the Delis Kaplan Executive Functioning System (D-KEFS) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]The D-KEFS Trail Making Test Condition 4: Number-Letter Switching Scaled Score was used to assess executive functioning. Scaled scores range from 1-19. Higher scores represent less impairment.
