The latest from Opal
Jims return to radio
Jim hosts his radio show four times a week at Opal Greenfern Place in Queensland, entertaining residents, families and team members
40s dance party
Our residents at Opal Cardinal Freeman in Ashfield, Sydney love a party! The enjoyment of music can enable a wonderful sense of wellbeing and happiness and this was truly felt by us all as we danced away the afternoon.
Extending the hand of friendship
Moving into residential aged care can be emotional. Cicely's Hand of Friendship group ensures everyone has someone to talk too & feels a part of the community.
A career in caring is a family affair
Nearly 10 years of study have seen Naomi progress from being an Assistant in Nursing to an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse, and finally, this year earning a Bachelor of Nursing degree
Technology Creating Connections
Augmented reality has arrived in Opal care homes, posing new ways for residents living in aged care to connect with others using the latest interactive technology. We have begun trialing ROMPA® interactive projectors in a number of our homes
Embracing friendship across generations
Intergenerational programs form part of the beating heart of many of our Opal care homes. While the age groups involved span the spectrum from babies and pre-schoolers to school and university students, the one thing in common is the tremendous benefit that all participants receive, regardless of age.
