Azura Living’s founder, Joshua McClellan, began the company in 2008 with a vision to transform the culture of care. Today, the Azura Living family is focused on providing compassionate care and transformational programming to those in need of memory care. Through, Azura Memory Care’s network of home-like communities throughout Wisconsin, our team ensures that our guests feel safe and at ease.
Due to our commitment to caring for those with living with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias our goal is to offer a rich spectrum of person-centered memory care services based on Azura exclusive MOSAIC Connections Training. This highly specialized program centers, is evidence based, and focuses on improving our guests’ quality of life through meaningful person-centered sensory activities, which stimulate the senses to evoke memory, decrease pain and agitation, promote relaxation, and offer comfort and serenity to those living with dementia. MOSAIC by Azura provides MOSAIC Moments of peace and joy for our resident, family and friends.

Through strategic acquisitions and development, MHS grew from a single, skilled nursing facility to a leading regional healthcare provider with six full service retirement communities, caring for over 650 residents.
