As September nears closer, many of our Azura homes have been hosting their Walk to End Alzheimer’s Team Events to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, which have been great successes thanks to the outpouring of support from our team, Azura families and friends and our exceptional community members and local businesses!
This event was truly a team effort with team members, Azura families and local businesses donating the brats, burgers, baked goods, buns and a variety of raffle items. In addition, Sheboygan Rocks donated rocks for the event’s rock painting station, which will all be hid along the two mile trail at Evergreen park the day before the Sheboygan Walk to End Alzheimer’s event.
Attendees were also able to make their own “In honor of” t-shirts to wear at the Walk for their loved ones and the many others who have been affected by this disease.
Azura would like to thank all who were a part of this special event and made it an exceptional day for our residents, families and community members. We look forward to walking together and know every cent raised and step taken brings us closer to a world without Alzheimer’s.

"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
