Azura Memory Care is committed to transforming the culture of care for those with memory loss. Currently our team of quality of life specialists led by Cathy Kehoe, Cultural Training Director at Azura Memory Care are implementing a holistic programming plan in each of our communities. Our MOSAIC program name stands for Memory care professionals Offering Support through Advances and Innovation in Care.
MOSAIC’s cutting-edge programming is evidence-based, researched and tested as the highest standard in dementia care. It honors the personhood of each individual by understanding that dementia is a disability of only specific areas of the brain, not the whole person. Our strengths-based programming works to utilize the parts of the brain that are still functioning properly leading to engagement and enhanced quality of life.
While our MOSAIC programming philosophy spaces activities throughout the day by varying levels of individual and peer engagement with recommended rest periods, it also honors the needs of the individual and their pace. The programming is further tailored to each person based on their care plan goals, past history, interests and abilities.
Each member of Azura’s Executive and Caregiving Team has received training on the basic philosophy of MOSAIC. As a result you will begin to see different activities offered within the homes that focus on creative expression, small group peer interactions, special interest clubs, and one-on-one engagement. Team members may approach you for additional information about residents as well.
Caregivers will be partnered with residents to better learn about their lives prior to the disease, their likes and dislikes and ways to best assist them with their care. They will then work to create opportunities to use this information to enhance their care and engage them in activities and bring them magical “MOSAIC Moments.”
These “MOSAIC Moments” and will be shared via the Azura Memory Care website and blog, which can be found at azura.sitespeedhosting.com. Be sure to subscribe to the Azura blog and receive “MOSAIC Moments” in your inbox as they happen!
My father has been here only a little over 2 months. The positive change in him has been DRAMATIC! I would HIGHLY recommend Azura........ I would give it 10 stars if they allowed it! This is the premier facility for any family member with cognitive issues! They do treat residents like family, believe 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

Just moved my sister-in-law to Azura Stoughton on February 12th. I feel like I’ve found a little piece of dementia heaven. The staff has gone way beyond my expectations to meet her needs and take time to know her. Anyone who has dementia deserves the TLC they receive at Azura. I’m so impressed.

Thank you to the Azura Memory Care team, Sheboygan location for the amazing, loving care they provided my dad. They truly loved and cared for my dad as if he was their own. It is such a warm, loving, family environment I only wish we would have moved my dad there years earlier!

I have enjoyed working with patients at Azura Care as a Physical Therapist Assistant. The staff has been very helpful in sharing important information about the patients to make their therapy sessions as productive as possible. They are open to learning techniques to help keep patients safe and improve their ability to perform daily tasks with less assistance. Their interactions with patients show caring and compassion with a focus on the needs of each individual to enjoy the best quality of life possible.

The journey of caregiving for my Aunt started over 4 years ago. It has been a very long difficult journey. It is hard to watch and frustrating to watch a loved one decline, as well as for them to live the decline. My Aunt found her final peace at Azura Memory Care in Sheboygan. It was not only her peace but mine as well. I no longer had to worry about her care as I could see that she was loved by her Azura family. She passed away on June 21 and they knew how important that it was for me to be there, but I also found peace that if I was not there, she was with family that loved her. No words can express the appreciation for the care, compassion and love that they have for all their residents. God has opened many doors through my journey and the doors at Azura were truly a gift from God. This family made a difference in a long journey. I will always have them in my thoughts and prayers. They are where and doing what they are meant to do!
