Kathy Beveridge, Quality of Life Coordinator for our Azura Memory Care of Oconomowoc home was selected as a True Blue Award recipient after having received several nominations from her Team and from families.
“Kathy is a goddess when it comes to caring for my Dad and making my Mom feel so comfortable that my Dad is being watched over,” said one family. “She sends pictures, provides updates and goes out of her way to look for ways to stimulate my Dad during his residency at Azura.” She shares that Kathy knew her Dad loved to watch the road construction going on outside of his room at Azura and took it upon herself to trim the bushes outside of his window, just so he could see and aid in his RECOVERY.
According to her Team, “Kathy always goes the extra mile…the connections she builds with the residents and families is truly amazing. Kathy does an EXCEPTIONAL job each and every day she is here.”
Another family shared that “Kathy has been an outstanding lady ever since the first day.” Pre-COVID, Kathy took pictures of him and his wife on multiple occasions, providing them to him and his family and putting them around Azura so that his wife is triggered to smile and remember him. On their 50th wedding anniversary Kathy set up a special table with their wedding pictures, wedding scrapbook, and champagne flutes so that they could toast together.
He shares that Kathy is very INNOVATIVE in how she decorates the common areas and especially cognizant to celebrate holidays or Packer games. She also came up with the idea to create a family poster that the Team could review with his wife to try to help her RETAIN the memory of her family for longer.
“It’s very comforting,” said a family. “that Kathy is there to be my Dad’s guardian angel.”

"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
