Modifying houses so seniors can stay in their homes

Shirley and Tom Clements’ home is steeped in memories. Photos going back six generations cover the walls of the packed living room. Knick-knacks and animal figurines fill shelves above the kitchen sink. They’ve been in the house for more than 20 years. “Pretty much we landed a place, and we pretty much plant ourselves,” Shirley said, sitting at her kitchen table on a recent afternoon. “We don’t go out for much options.” But will the tiny 50-year-old house keep being an option as they age? They’re adapting their home to make that a possibility.
