Do you know that crayons were first invented in 1903! As a result, many within our care have used this creativity tool for fun and self-expression for nearly all of their life.
Most people think that adult coloring is something that recently came about, but the truth is that psychologist, Carl G. Jung brought this stress releasing outlet to light in the early 20th Century. In fact, it is a technique that our Azura Memory Care Team has used to help calm, sooth and bring joy to our residents for many years.
Recently the Kenosha News highlighted our efforts in article discussing the benefits of adult coloring. Click here to read more!
One thing that we recognize is that art of any kind can evoke memories, boost self-esteem and help our residents to feel valued. As a result, many of our homes participate in the Memories in the Making program by the Alzheimer’s Association and have special displays that showcase the masterpieces created by our residents. Please feel free to visit your local Azura Memory Care home to see our creations any time!
"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
