Beverly Stein is one of the many tech-savvy retirees living at Fox Run. She uses Lyft to order rides and Facebook to keep in touch with family and friends.

Jackie Pomeroy-Miller, a programming manager at Fox Run’s continuing care neighborhood, has invited independent living residents to bring their dogs to visit. She plans to bring her Boston terrier puppy, Scout (pictured here), for visits with residents. 

The mood in a room instantly shifts whenever a cute, fluffy dog prances in. Petting or playing with a sweet pooch certainly seems to lift our spirits and lessen our anxiety.

There’s no doubt that music and singing can lift our spirits. After all, it’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re belting out an upbeat tune, especially when you’re singing along with friends. That is why Fox Run’s men’s chorus brings so much joy—both to the singers as well as to the people who get to listen to the group’s music around campus.

Financial security is one of the cornerstones of a fulfilling retirement. That’s why Fox Run’s management team works so hard to provide good financial value to residents and help them to protect the investments they’ve built over their lifetimes.
