Florida Matters: Aging in Place

Last summer, a Georgetown University study found that an overwhelming majority of baby boomers want to age in place -- stay living in their homes as long as possible. But only 1 in 5 of those surveyed said they had any plan to remodel their home or incorporate technology to make that possible. We visit the home of a Tampa woman who had it remodeled to accommodate her 81-year-old mother, and talk to a panel of experts about how to stay living in your home safely and comfortably.
