The Year of Courage, Connection and Heart14th December 2020 | 8 mins
We all agree that 2020 has been a year like no other, full of unique challenges and circumstances that none of us could have imagined possible. It has also been a year where, across our Opal care communities, we have seen the power of the human spirit rise to meet those challenges in the most extraordinary ways.
Our book, 2020, The Year of Courage, Connection, and Heart captures just some of these remarkable moments with a selection of snapshots taken by our Opal team throughout the year.
This book is dedicated to our residents, families, and team who, in the face of unimaginable challenges throughout the year, have acted with fortitude, brilliance, grace, humility, compassion, and good humour.
We invite you to take a look at the year in which the irrepressible spirit of our residents, team, families, care partners and communities has inspired us all.
