Opal Moments aged care magazine

Opal Moments is our bi-annual aged care magazine bringing you stories of lives lived with meaning and purpose in our Care Communities. To us, quality aged care means supporting peoples’ physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing and we share those stories here.

Welcome to Opal Moments Magazine Summer 2021. We invite you to read our engaging aged care magazine via the online version or click on the links below to download your copy. You’ll also find the magazine in our Care Communities around Australia.

In this edition we share the story of Elizabeth and her extraordinary life as an educator with over 50 years’ experience, who puts her knowledge and passion to use by supporting her Care Community team with recruitment interviews. A true treasure and advocate for fellow residents, Elizabeth’s contribution to recruitment enables her to play a meaningful role in her community.

In our Health & Wellbeing section, we explore the power of pets, and the research behind pet therapy in aged care. We also meet Iain, a member of our Wellness Centre, who is working towards his goal of visiting his daughter at Christmas, without his wheel chair.

We delve into the importance of intergenerational connections, the research that supports it and how our Care Communities are embracing friendships with younger generations. We also introduce Dementia Care Connections, designed to support education, awareness and connection for people whose loved ones are living with dementia.

To us, quality aged care means supporting peoples’ physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing and we share those stories here.

We hope you enjoy the latest edition ofOpal Moments Magazine - Edition 12 Summer 2021.
