Pictured above are Ethel Moritz and Germaine Metz sharing a goat.
Twin baby pigmy goats recently visited Azura Memory Care of Monroe. The goats are 3 weeks old, baby soft and super snuggly. The residents spent hours holding, petting and just loving them. Some even suggested that we keep them and raise them at Azura Memory Care of Monroe! When the goat owners were asked just what made them decide to bring in the goats, they replied, “Everyone brings in dogs and cats, so we wanted the residents to experience something many of them probably had on their own farms growing up.” Many residents reminisced about their childhood, so it was a great interactive time for everyone. Smiles were literally everywhere.
"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
