PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This week on Flashpoint, we take a look at the five alarm fire at Barclay Friends Senior Center in West Chester that claimed four lives and left 133 displaced.

We also look at older Pennsylvanians do to protect themselves, and what can caretakers do to protect their elderly loved ones.
