Transforming the Culture of Memory Care
Our parent company, Azura Living, created its name from the Latin word for “blue sky.” It fits nicely with the clear, crisp, skies over Wisconsin where Azura Living is based. It also speaks to our founders’ desire to create an inspiring company with a healthy and positive environment for our guests, residents and team members.
Azura Living founder Josh McClellan has spent more than 35 years in the health care industry. He started the company in 2008 with a vision to transform the culture of care. Today, the Azura Living family is committed to providing our guests with the finest amenities, the most innovative therapies, and the most personalized care.
Our corporate philosophy is to Transform the Culture of Memory Care for those living with memory loss in our homes, in our communities and the world!
As a result, Azura Memory Care pledges to honor and understand each person in our care and offer solutions to memory challenges through holistic programming, daily activities and reminiscence therapy. Our dedication is also shown through our extensive offering of training and resources to the communities we serve.
Our Commitment is Exceptional Caring
Azura Memory Care is a trusted provider of innovative memory care services and programs across Wisconsin. From homelike settings to transformational programming, our Wisconsin memory care retirement communities provide a safe and nurturing place for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Our Core Values and Beliefs
Five core values guide the decisions we make as Azura Memory Care team members and as a company:
Celebrate moments of Joy - EVERY DAY! At Azura, we are truly transforming the culture of memory care by knowing our residents and treating them as we would want to be treated. We're proud of the caliber of programming we provide, and we promise you that your loved one will be cared for with respect and unparalleled support for their physical, mental, and emotional needs.
Most people are drawn to a home because of how it looks. While we have taken great care in designing a home that creates an environment that bolsters our residents, we realize that the most important part isn’t how fancy the building is, but who is walking the floor. This is why we have created MOSAIC — an exclusive, research-based, and personally-tested training program for our team.
The program encompasses over 90 hours of yearly training for each team member — helping them to weave every moment of care into a MOSAIC of love, engagement, and support for our residents. We recognize that the caregivers and the care that they provide is what is truly important. It’s not the walls or the amenities that will be approaching, communicating, and being with your loved one when you are not there. The caregivers will be. And they are the ones who can give the hugs!
