Just moved my sister-in-law to Azura Stoughton on February 12th. I feel like I’ve found a little piece of dementia heaven. The staff has gone way beyond my expectations to meet her needs and take time to know her. Anyone who has dementia deserves the TLC they receive at Azura. I’m so impressed.

The medical staff at this facility was exceptional. Their care and concern could not have been better. The kitchen staff was very accommodating and the meals were excellent. The Director was very informative and explained the procedures and policies so as to be very helpful. The CNA’s and aides were so caring and treated my husband better than I could have desired. Our experience was a wonderful one in spite of the very difficult life journey.

Azura Memory Care, thank you so much for giving the best care to my grandpa, Bob. Helping him and my grandma celebrate their anniversary was so thoughtful of you! Please keep up everything you do for our family. We’re all so appreciative of what your staff does, and I’m so happy that my grandpa is living at your community.

They changed the quality of my dad's life. They truly showed him love and care which brought a smile to his face that had been missing for a long time. They thought outside the box to help and accommodate him. A little love and caring took him a long way. Very impressed and happy with all the staff.

These people know what they are doing. They genuinely care about you and your resident. I can't thank them enough for the love, care, and understanding they gave my mother. They will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
