The Long Journey
The journey of caregiving for my Aunt started over 4 years ago. It has been a very long difficult journey. It is hard to watch and frustrating to watch a loved one decline, as well as for them to live the decline. My Aunt found her final peace at Azura Memory Care in Sheboygan. It was not only her peace but mine as well. I no longer had to worry about her care as I could see that she was loved by her Azura family. She passed away on [date removed] and they knew how important that it was for me to be there, but I also found peace that if I was not there, she was with family that loved her. No words can express the appreciation for the care, compassion and love that they have for all their residents. God has opened many doors through my journey and the doors at Azura were truly a gift from God. This family made a difference in a long journey. I will always have them in my thoughts and prayers. They are where and doing what they are meant to do!
They treat Dad as if he were a beloved family member
When we were searching for a residential care facility for my father, our hope was that we could find a place where the team would care for him as if he were a family member. We weren't sure that was actually possible, but thankfully it's a reality at Azura Sheboygan. The team at Azura treats Dad with genuine care, respect, and kindness. They have taken the time to get to know him as a person, and they have also taken the time to learn the nuances of his situation so that he can have the care that is best for him. As a family member, it makes it much easier for me to rest comfortably, because I know that they are making sure that Dad gets what he needs, and that they will continue to do so even as his situation changes. They also maintain an excellent relationship with his medical team.
Other facilities may have larger rooms, or higher ceilings, or larger video screens. Azura's facilities are clean and safe but more modestly appointed. They put the money and the effort into caring for the patients. From our perspective, that's a much better investment.
Best place for loving care for dementia patients.
I placed my mother in Azura based on several things. I dropped by without an appointment so i could see how the staff interacted with the patients. I had been to other places with appointments and felt like I was watching a staged event. When we arrived, the patients were making their own pizzas and bouncing balloons around. Everyone was happy, clean and appeared very content. The rooms were adequate, not fancy, but I learned that should not be how you choose a place to care for your mother. I transferred my mom to Azura and immediately she loved it! She had lost interest in eating and now had her appetite back as her happiness increased. She was treated with love, respect and kindness. They would wake her up in the morning by saying "Good morning Beautiful!" She adored all her caretakers and began to relate to them. I was out of town and she was admitted to the hospital after a fall and she was very frightened. I could not be with her, so her main caretaker came in from home and stayed with her that night so she wouldn't be afraid. I have never seen a more loving place for advanced dementia patients as Azura. The staff was so devoted. They let mom set her own schedule and if she wanted to eat Lucky Charms in the middle of the night, she could. My mother was blessed to live out her last days at Azura.
Providing compassionate care begins with a secure, warm setting. When people with memory loss feel at home, they respond more positively and interact more with others.
At Azura Memory Care our relationship-based care philosophy recognizes each person is an extraordinary individual and focuses on engagement.
Azura has earned a reputation for elevating the standard of memory care through our evidence-based, cutting-edge training called MOSAIC. This exclusive training program ensures every Team Member understands the disease process of dementia and how to effectively approach, communicate and engage those within our care to successfully help them have a joyful experience.
Our belief is that every part of our care needs to be a personalized MOSAIC of love and support that encourages our residents to live, not just exist.
