We know the importance of keeping family connections alive, especially for those whose memories are slowly fading due to Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. However, not all caregivers live in the same city or even the same state, which is why we have been testing different ways to help families stay connected.
Recently, a Team Member at Azura Memory Care of Wausau helped connect a family via Skype. It was wonderful to see that our resident felt an instant connection to the visually and audio stimuli provided through this medium. Pictured above, you can see how interactive this type of communication can become. Our hope is to provide this form of communication at more of our Azura locations in the near future, as it truly was a MOSAIC Moment made possible by our INNOVATIVE Wausau Team!

"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
