Paula Gibson, Regional Director of Communications and Engagement for Azura was named the first True Blue Award recipient in 2013. She was nominated for her efforts in creating Azura’s exclusive MOSAIC Training and Engagement system, all while handling the Sales and Marketing for the company too.
In a move to help ensure the proper education of our Team, Paula became a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Virtual Dementia Tour Trainer, Certified Cognitive Stimulation Provider and began to work to enhance our quality of life programming through the State.
During this time Paula also provided various community, caregiver, medical provider and keynote presentations on topics related to dementia throughout the State and spreading the good word about Azura and our efforts to transform the culture of care.
While her efforts at Azura were admirable, she also continued to facilitate the Eau Claire County Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Awareness Support Group and as the Chair of the Eau Claire Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Spearheading a special Thrift Sale that raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association.
A family caregiver herself, Paula helped to care for her grandmother and father, who have since passed away due to dementia, which is where her True Blue passion stems from.
