Considering memory care for my mom was very difficult, but from the moment we walked in the door for our official “tour", we saw skilled, caring professionals dealing with all levels of care in a beautiful setting. My mom has settled in and is enjoying the wide array of activities and outings. We are so happy we found Azalea Gardens.
Azalea Gardens goes above and beyond in the care for their residents. The staff is well trained in area of Alzheimer’s. The food is delicious and looks amazing. Management is excellent. Ms. Predis makes sure all questions are answered honestly and correctly. I have and continue to recommend Azalea Gardens to friends and family.

Our virus mitigation protocols include full personal protective gear, sanitizer stations at all traffic areas, and cleaning throughout the community multiple times per day.
Our Memory Care Life Enrichment Program is designed to honor the memories and experiences of our residents by providing physical engagement, spiritual support, sensory stimulation, social connections, intellectual discovery, and emotional expression. The program includes:
- Sensory & VR Therapy: Stimulating the senses can produce a calming effect and in some cases help bring back memories

- Aroma Therapy: Smells reminiscent from childhood such as home-baked cookies and fresh baked bread
- Validation Techniques: Words are powerful and our residents are encouraged to give and receive positive feedback
- Socialization: Residents and staff all enjoy time together each day in both large and small groups in safe settings to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation
- Health & Wellness: Providing activities that promote residents’ physicality help to curb agitation, wandering and sleeplessness, while intellectual activities encourage learning and participating in both new and familiar hobbies
- Spiritual Support: Music, discussion, prayer, affirmations, nature and other diverse means of spiritual support provides comfort and familiar purpose
- Life Skills Stations: Miniature kitchens, faux engines, and mailboxes are among the many real-life scenarios and work the residents did in their youth
- And much more!
Our Person-Centered Care approach focuses on our residents’ needs, while our Active Living Programs allow them to live life to their fullest capability. Our residents feel at home in Azalea Gardens because our approach is based on the residents’ lifetime routine, not ours. Additionally, we provide health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care.
Our community’s leadership team includes our Executive Director, Health Services Director, and Life Enrichment Director. Our passionate and dedicated team of skilled professionals offer exceptional support for our residents’ needs, including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs, through engaging daily activities.
It’s easy to become spoiled with our 24/7 Dining Experience. We go beyond all-day dining so you can enjoy gourmet food prepared from the freshest ingredients by our Executive Chef and team of professionals any time of day or night. Since our quality of food and service must be experienced, we invite you to join us for lunch or dinner. Our chef is trained and happy to accommodate residents with dietary needs due to various health restrictions, such as low gluten and sugar-free diets, and much more.
Our daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet that fosters brain health. Our goal is that the MIND diet, in conjunction with our many Memory Care programs, will help hold off memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices. Learn more about our Memory Care dining program and the MIND diet.
Sensory stimulation is the activation of one or more of the five senses (taste, smell, vision, hearing, and touch) with the goal of evoking positive feelings. This innovative therapy can reduce tension, agitation, anxiety, depression, and anger which are common behavioral side effects in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementias. By planning meaningful, stimulating activities and considering our residents’ unique interests, we can create personal experiences in our custom Sensory Spas and make a significant difference in our residents’ lives.
Our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality Therapy enables residents to explore bucket list journeys and experiences they’ve always wanted to complete, all within the comfort of our community. With VR Therapy, your loved one can explore the Caribbean sea and virtually scuba dive with sting rays, or discover an untapped passion for music with VR first row seats to the New York Metropolitan Opera House. Whether it’s travel or new experiences your loved one seeks, our new, groundbreaking therapy can make almost any adventure dreams a virtual reality.
