At Azura Memory Care, we recognize the power of a recapturing a dream, which is why we have begun a partnership with Second Wind Dreams, a nonprofit organization committed to “changing the perception of aging through the fulfillment of dreams and innovative educational programming” . As part of this new initiative, we have begun engaging residents’ conversations about their dreams and how they’d envision their “best day ever.”
One resident at Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire was recently asked what his “best day” would be spent doing. His reply was to “win the Masters…hit a hole-in-one…just go golfing again.”
Since then, the Team has been looking for ways to engage him in golfing conversations and activities. As a result, we have seen an increase in his physical activity and simply the amount of his smiles. Pictured here, he is working on his short-game using a putting trainer indoors. Recognizing his increased enjoyment, the Team is now creating a putting green in the backyard and are working with the local community to get him out on an actual golf course in the near future.
Shhh….. Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire has also begun working with Second Wind Dreams to present him with a green jacket and crown him the Azura Masters Champion of Golf! He’ll be surprised.
"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
