Lana - Loved one of resident/client
Opal really is the best.

You certainly get what you pay for and with Opal, they seem to have all the bases covered. We were one of the first families to move into Opal when they opened. The facility is bright, spacious, and impeccably clean. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and fast to respond in an emergency. My father-in-law transitioned with ease and Opal was right there coaching and supporting us while we worked to convince him it was time. - - - My Father-in-law is in the Licensed Care facility of Opal and it is secure, safe, and only visitors who have been approved may take him from the facility.

Excellent presentation and friendly reception, but can't feel the atmosphere of actual physical building and surrounding because the construction is in progress.

I had a tour at the display center. I was greeted promptly and was shown in detail the blueprint of the buildings. There was a show unit. The design is for seniors, wide doors for wheel chair access - so is the bathroom, the shower stall entrance is flushed - wheelchair accessible to the shower. Their concept is good, with rental,self own and long term care units. The concept & design are on the high end side, you get what you paid for.
