“At Opal, our purpose is to 'bring joy to those we care for'. For me, this is a powerful statement which really defines what we are striving to do at Opal. When we do it well, we make such a positive difference to the lives of our residents, their families and their communities. We believe that the better we know and understand our residents’ needs, the better able we are to serve them, and this is something that motivates us every day.”
