“It is often said that home is where your heart is. That is why Azura has been “home” to us for the past several years. It is the enormous hearts of all the staff that have made my mom’s final years such a comfort to not only her, but to dad and all of her children. We are eternally grateful for the tireless care that you provided for her. Azura was mom’s home….not just another facility. We knew the staff by name and by sharing family stories. It was truly a blessing to find such wonderful care for mom. God Bless You All!” – Mary
