Azura in the Community: February Events


At Azura Memory Care, our mission of transforming the culture of care extends far beyond the walls of our homes. It extends into our homes’ surrounding communities through our involvement and participation in Alzheimer’s disease awareness and advocacy, research and resource fundraising, and offering education through community presentations and by being a statewide facilitator of the internationally-known, Virtual Dementia Tour.  

Our Azura family is hosting and participating in many educational and advocacy events this month! Check out what we have going on below and please consider joining us! You can learn more on our NEW Azura Events page here and stay updated on what we have planned for 2020.

Held annually and coordinated by the Alzheimer’s Association, Azura Memory Care has an Advocacy Squad that has been made up of team members, residents and family members who make the journey to the Wisconsin State Capital to address concerns and beneficial legislature that work to aid those who are affected by this disease.
