Abstract

One of the neglected areas of psychological research is hoarding distress among older population. This paper offers an exploratory and critical perspectives to understanding hoarding behaviour as a reflection of how psychological distresses manifest in older people. Owing to the Smail's Impress of Power model, psychological distresses are triggered by socioeconomic and political factors that operates beyond the individuals. In addition, the paper argued that older people play an essential role in a conservative cultural society like Nigeria. Therefore, building an old age-friendly society would include harmonious utilisation of sustainable development and good governance with specific targets on the critical policy re-organisation and the involvement of older people in developing desired modern communities.
