“I’ve lived here for 20 years. There’s nowhere else I could go that would feel like home.”
The ability to continue to live at home as we grow older – sometimes referred to as ‘aging in place’ – is an emotional topic for many.

If you care for an older adult who is living on their own, we’ve compiled our top tips and practical changes you can make today to improve their safety at home.

Just 7 degrees north of the equator in the western Pacific Ocean, lays the beautiful island atoll of Yap.
Ringed by coral reefs, and home to manta rays and sharks, Yap is well known for its rich culture, spectacular dive sites, thatched huts and ancient stone money.
Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it?
But the people on the outer islands of Yap are on the front lines of climate change.
That was especially the case earlier this year, when we got to hang out with Coyote Peterson, Mark Vins and Mario Aldecoa from Brave Wilderness at the Australian Reptile Park, as part of their tour Down Under.
