Ethics in Working with Older Adults Who Hoard presented by Joanna Frankel MSW, LCSW-C. While hoarding is a serious compulsive behavioral problem impacting the health and safety of older adults, the condition is highly resistant to treatment. Because of this, complex ethical dilemmas often arise when working with seniors who hoard and their family members. This ethics program applies the professional Code of Ethics as it relates to decisional older adults who hoard as well as those with cognitive impairment.
