So I have a long story to tell but I will try to shorten it to get advice on how to approach a situation needing to be addressed.
My father is a horrible hoarder. When my mom and grandparents (his parents) all passed away within 6 months of each other approx 5 years ago, my dad became devastated. His hoarding became much worse. He could take care of himself. Water heater broke and spray water for a month before I finally noticed a ton of water in the driveway and went inside to find the garage full of mildew.
Around 2 months later my father had a 90% blockage in his heart. My sister and I decided to move him into a retirement community. The house sat vacant for around a year with all the things in it.
About 4 weeks ago, the house was broken into by vagrants. Some items were stolen but the majority remained intact. Sister and I had no choice but to clean out the house so that they would not return. We knew if our dad was involved he would have slowed down the process. To today, he still does not know what happened.
We must tell him the whole story but are both afraid of his reaction. Any advice would help.
