Area's growing demand for affordable senior housing unlikely to ease in coming years

FARGO — Every time Elaine Charlson walks to her apartment in south Fargo, she passes an old photo that brings back memories.
The picture from 1968 shows the Perkins Pancake House on Broadway in downtown, where Charlson’s grandmother would take her once a week to eat as a child.
The pancake house no longer exists, but the photo hanging on the wall and others like it remind Charlson and her husband, Gary, of days gone by. It’s one of many reasons why they love living at HomeField II, affordable apartments for seniors that opened earlier this year.
