At Opal, we believe the best care we deliver is the care delivered in partnership with others. Our partnerships inform our training, development and customer experience in ways that enable our residents, communities and team members to thrive. 

We choose to work with partners who share our values and our purpose ‘to bring joy to those we care for’, and help us enhance the emotional and physical health and wellbeing of our residents.

We are very proud of our long-standing partnerships with tertiary education providers, allied health and specialist organisations, and will continue to develop partnerships with those who can help us to build our Opal talent, deliver exceptional customer service and enrich the lives of our elders.
