The team at Azura Memory Care of Manitowoc demonstrated what it means to BE EXCEPTIONALwhen they decided to throw a Surprise 60th Anniversary Party for one of their residents, Delores, and her husband, Eddy. While using Delores’ Life Story Book, a team member, discovered this significant date. Together, the entire team decided to work together to throw a surprise party for the couple and really went above and beyond to replicate details of their wedding day.
One team member replicated Delores’s hair style from her wedding picture, while another applied her makeup. The team created a beautiful table setting, and even cooked the couple’s favorite meal. There were bridesmaid and bouquets, big fabulous hats and of course some sparkling champagne. The team made sure to invite Eddy’s sister and family members of other residents who have come to know the happy couple throughout their time at Azura.
There were many wonderful parts of the day, By far, the best part of the day was the joy it brought Delores. Delores spoke and smiled more than anyone has heard in the last year. She felt beautiful and knew it was a special day. At the end, she grabbed Eddy’s hand and said, “I like you.” He kissed her and said, “I like you too.”
The entire Team in Manitowoc went above and beyond to answer the call to BE EXCEPTIONAL. They brought a tremendous amount of joy to Delores and Eddy and gave them a memorable 60th Anniversary.
