A large part of the reason Fox Run is such a great place to live is because management takes great care in hiring employees who are the best of the best—whether they are heading up the marketing department, serving entrees in one of the on-site restaurants, or providing medical care for the people who live at Fox Run. 

LaVon and Bill McCauley recently sold their Sterling Heights, Mich., home in just one day. Now they are enjoying worry-free living at Fox Run, the Erickson Living community in Novi.

If you’ve decided 2017 is the year you want to sell your house, you have excellent timing. Housing markets around the country have been steadily on the rise for the last several years, and recent data are particularly encouraging for sellers.

When Margo Gerber decided to move from her condo to Fox Run in Novi, Mich., she immediately got on the fast track thanks to Erickson Realty and Moving Services.

Last winter, Margo Gerber decided she wanted to sell her Northville, Mich., condo and move to Fox Run in Novi, Mich. By early spring, she had pared down decades’ worth of belongings, packed up and settled into a two-bedroom, one-bath, Fairmont-style apartment home at Fox Run.

Social media sites like Facebook may have begun as a place for teenagers and college kids to share photos and updates about their lives, but these days, young people aren’t the only ones logging onto the uber-popular social networking site. In fact, older adults are one of the fastest-growing segments of new Facebook users.

In April, the Novi Chamber of Commerce named Fox Run the “Best Place to Work” in the large business category for the second year in a row. Of course, the honor doesn’t come as a surprise to the 700 people who work at the Erickson Living retirement community in Novi, Mich.

Fox Run’s Writers’ Forum is open to different kinds of writers who want to share their work and hone their craft. (Back row, from left) Arnetta Whitehouse, Ray Bradley, and Dick Miles. (Front row, from left) Carol Canavan, J.V. Anandan, and Jack Allard.

Arnetta Whitehouse has loved writing ever since she was a little girl. When she was just seven years old, her aunt predicted that Arnetta would become an author. 

J.V. Anandan helped to start Fox Run’s Friendly Visitors Group, which dispatches independent living residents to spend time socializing with their neighbors in Fox Run’s continuing care neighborhood.

J.V. Anandan spent his career in the medical field. He taught pharmacology and therapeutics at Wayne State University and had a joint appointment as an administrator at Henry Ford Hospital. He also conducted research on how drugs affect older patients, who may require different doses. Now in retirement, he continues caring for others.

Sales Counselor Carolyn Ives is most people’s first point of contact when they visit Fox Run for an appointment and tour.

Many people’s first encounter with Fox Run is an appointment with the community’s sales counselor, Carolyn Ives. That initial appointment is an excellent opportunity to learn more about what the Erickson Living community in Novi, Mich., has to offer and to get a sense of whether it’s right for you.
