We apologize for your frustration and understand your need to share with others. Please let us take a moment to try to explain our thoughts as well. Azura Memory Care is very committed to the overall wellbeing of our residents and specialize in helping those with memory loss and advancing dementia. While our current policy does allow supervised smoking in designated areas, we have found that smoking, even with assistance, is not a long-term possibility for those with memory loss as they begin to forget how to properly use the cigarette or other smoking material in a safe manner. Therefore, we have found great success in helping residents transition to an e-cigarette, which initially helps with their oral and nicotine needs. The beauty of an e-cigarette is that it slowly wears down the nicotine and weans the person off of that need and eventually their oral need dissipates as well. This is much less taxing on a person than asking them to stop, which could involve serious withdrawal effects often exacerbated by the dementia disease process. This is why we encourage families to help those with memory loss who are smoking switch to e-cigarette as soon as possible. In addition, a face-to-face assessment is always part of the Azura plan of care, which is why we ask for the ability to do an in-person assessment early in the conversation with the family. This assessment gives us a more clear picture of what is actually happening with the individual and if our care would fit their needs. It is rare, but there are times when the assessment finds that we would not be a good match for the individual. If that occurs we immediately notify the family and try to offer other options to them. Again we apologize that we weren’t able to help your loved one at this time.

From Azura Memory Care of Kenosha North
At Azura Memory Care we recognize that what's on the walls isn't as important, as who is walking the floor. As a result we have created an exclusive training and programming system called MOSAIC by Azura, which ensures that our Team provides not just high quality care, but exceptional personalized engagements that result in magical MOSAIC Moments and radiant smiles all day long!
Held-up as a standard in dementia care, MOSAIC honors the personhood of each individual by understanding that dementia is a disability in only specific areas of the brain, not the whole person. As a result, our strengths-based programming works to utilize the parts of the brain that are still functioning properly leading to engagement and enhanced quality of life. When you visit Azura you will witness our everyday use of MOSAIC programming through creative expression, small group peer interactions, special interest clubs, one-on-one engagements with caregivers, outdoor activities, small group outings, daily themes, church services, supervised baking, music and much more! In addition, you will be visiting a home that was specifically designed to support and engage those with memory loss throughout their disease process.
We offer a wide range of Alzheimer's, dementia and memory care services at Azura Memory Care of Kenosha North including: 24-hour memory care; on-site respite care; high caregiver to resident ratio; on-site beautician services; electronic charting system; medication management; diabetic management, including sliding scale insulin; registered nursing services; in-home podiatry and dental services and offer on-site physician oversight.
