What's a continuing care retirement community?
A: Fox Run is a continuing care retirement community or CCRC. This means we offer several levels of continuing care on-site, along with traditional independent living.
Do I need to be a resident of Fox Run to receive continuing care here?
A: No. You or your loved one can come to our continuing care neighborhood without being a Fox Run resident. This applies to permanent stays such as Assisted Living and Long-Term Care as well as temporary stays such as Short-Term Rehab.
Is there a difference between independent living and continuing care?
A: Yes. Independent living means exactly that: you'll continue to enjoy the independent life you're used to in your Fox Run apartment home. As a continuing care retirement community or CCRC, we also offer Assisted Living, Short-Term Rehab and Long-Term Care right on campus. Most Fox Run residents never need these advanced levels of care—but it's comforting to have them available.
Who decides what type of continuing care I need?
A: Our full-time doctors, nurse practitioners and social workers will complete an assessment to determine what type of care would most benefit you or your loved one.
How does the Fox Run medical staff compare to other Greater Detroit area providers?
A: While many other care centers employ part-time doctors, our medical staff is full-time. Plus, they specialize in senior health care. Our team also includes visiting specialists.

How much control do I have over my schedule? Do I have to go to bed and wake up at a certain time?
A: Not at all. Fox Run continuing care residents are free to structure their day however they chose. Additionally, we do not use a disruptive public address system. All communications are private between residents and staff.
How much does continuing care cost?
