The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. – Alfred Austin
Earlier this summer, the residents of Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire rolled up their sleeves got their hands’ dirty in the backyard. They planted three varieties of tomatoes, white onions and lots of flowers..and are now reaping the fruits (or in this case, vegetables) of their labor. It really brightens up the outdoor space and the spirits of the residents as they enjoy tending to the gardens.
"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
