Community Involvement

At Azura, our mission of transforming the culture of care extends far beyond the walls of our homes. It extends into our homes’ surrounding communities through our involvement and participation in awareness, advocacy and research and resource fundraising. Here are some ways that our Azura Living team, residents, families and friends have been active in our communities Wisconsin-wide:

Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Azura team members, residents, family members and friends join together to Walk to End Alzheimer’s each year. As a statewide sponsor of the event, Azura is proud to be able to help raise awareness and walk alongside those within our care, their families and the many individuals who are affected by this disease. 

 

 

Azura Thrift Sale

Our Azura homes come up with a variety of ways to fundraise for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s event every year, and for a couple of our homes, it is by hosting an Azura Thrift Sale with items donated by the community at large. Our Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire community held an annual Thrift Sale for more than a decade.  Raising over $100,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association thanks to a special monetary match from Holiday Vacations.  In addition, they contributed over 50,000 tons of goods for local charties like Goodwill and Hope Gospel Mission too! EXCEPTIONAL!

Advocacy Day

Held annually and coordinated by the Alzheimer’s Association, Azura has its own Advocacy Squad made up of Team members, residents and family members who make the journey to the Wisconsin State Capitol to address concerns and meet with legislators that work to aid those who are affected by this disease. This offers the opportunity to share with Wisconsin’s Senators and Representatives testaments, topics and ways legislation would help our elders and those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Azura has also been represented at the national Advocacy Forum held in Washington D.C.

Azura Dementia Symposiums

Recognized as Wisconsin’s Dementia Experts, Azura is honored to and coordinate two annual dementia symposiums in the Eau Claire and Milwaukee, Wisconsin areas. These annual conferences are designed for professionals and individuals caring for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. Azura works with many exceptional organizations and speakers to bring a variety of topics and great information geared toward dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Including international dementia expert Teepa Snow!

Azura MOSAIC Dreams Program

What would your best day be? It’s a simple question that we ask our residents at Azura as part of our MOSAIC Dreams Therapy Program. MOSAIC Dreams by Azura seeks to make the dreams and special personalized moments of joy for our residents come true. Thanks to our partnership with Second Wind Dreams, we have been able to take a resident golfing, something he had given up because of his disease diagnosis. Then we learned that a resident had always wanted to graduate from college, so we threw her a graduation party complete with cap, gown and an honorary diploma from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Another resident yearned to go back to the County Fair for a corn dog and a beer. We may have supplemented the beverage for a teddy bear, but regardless it made him smile! Every smile and every dream realized is part of the MOSAIC of love and support we try to weave at Azura for our residents and their families. Below are a few of our favorite dreams we have helped to come true!
