Fox Run
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. That’s why so-called “therapy dogs” can now be found in many hospitals, assisted living facilities, dentist offices, and other medical settings. 

Fox Run
Jerry Scheel is one of the hundreds of Fox Run residents who now use the My Erickson app to get information about campus activities, dining menus, local directories, and much more.

There’s no doubt that the internet is becoming integrated in every aspect of our lives. From making restaurant reservations and booking flights and hotels to checking your bank account balances and paying your bills, it seems whatever you might need to do, “there’s an app for that.” 

Fox Run
Fox Run’s newly renovated Ascot Clubhouse features a coffee shop, where community members, staff, and visitors can purchase specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, and grab-and-go items.

Renovating your house always sounds like a great idea—before you actually do it. But once you’re dealing with contractors missing deadlines and bills coming in at double what you expected, updating your home becomes less enticing.

Cedar Crest
With three laptops, an Android smartphone, and a tablet, Cedar Crest social media ambassador, resident Kathy Moffitt, is fit for the job.

Research shows that today’s seniors are often just as comfortable using technology as their younger counterparts. Kathy Moffitt, who does nearly all communication via email or text, would fit in well on a college campus.

Cedar Crest
Former hospital administrator Dorothy Zimmerman understands the importance of having additional care available should she ever need it, while being empowered to live independently as long as possible.

Finding the right home to spend your retirement isn’t just about affordability. Or amenities. Or the food. It’s not just about continuing care or the size and style of your home. It’s about all of those things. It’s about finding a home that offers you the most value, which comes in many shapes and sizes. 

Charlestown
Arthur Jones turned to his Charlestown neighbors for help with his latest book: The Jesus Spy. (L to R) Carol Davisson, Arthur Jones, Bill Bettridge, and Pat Bettridge.

Aside from a maintenance-free home and a wealth of on-site amenities and activities, one of the great things about living at Charlestown is the number of diverse and talented people who call it home.
