In less than 20 years, according to a new Harvard study, one in three U.S. households will be headed by someone 65 or older. The number of households headed by those 80-plus will more than double. And in survey after survey, people say they want to stay in their homes when they age. But are their homes fit for the challenges of aging?  We'll discuss efforts to adapt homes in Northeast Ohio and the role of design and technology.
