Fred, Maintenance Technician, and Kathy, Quality of Life Coordinator, Oconomowoc
Kathy and Fred are recognized for their INNOVATION in creating an in-home “Gingerbread House” featuring all of the residents. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Kathy and the Azura team captured photos of the residents and made several collages to reflect different holiday-inspired scenes with Fred and the residents assisting with creating and decorating the Gingerbread House materials.
The residents and team had so much fun creating this and would share a laugh whenever they walked past the finished product. Kathy, thinking of all of the grandchildren and great grandchildren that would be coming for a visit, incorporated several hidden elves from the “Elf on the Shelf” story into some of the pictures for them to find. A truly touching and INNOVATIVE project that brought so much joy to many this past holiday season! Thank you Kathy, Fred and Oconomowoc Team for piecing this MOSAIC Moment together. You are EXCEPTIONAL!
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
