Azura Memory Care recently introduced its MOSAIC Engagement Resource Guide to our team…And our team eagerly accepted. This guide is filled with over 500 different inspiring ideas for engagement with our residents. We know that through MOSAIC engagements, we are able to meet our resident’s core psychological needs to boost self-esteem, have the power to choose, to be needed and useful, to care for others, to share joy and laughter, and to love and to be loved.
Pictured are Azura Memory Care of Stoughton and Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire making Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag, an engagement activity found in the Guide. Each Engagement has clear cut instructions on that helps us connect with a person at any stage of memory loss using reminisce therapy, cognitive therapy, active therapy, chore therapy and creative therapy.
The results- magical MOSAIC Moments of personalized joy!

How to make it
"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
