Fox Hill condominium owners have priority access to assisted living, free of community entrance fees.
What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted living services give you the dignity of receiving help with certain tasks, while also letting you thrive on your own. Typically, an on-site health aide will help assisted living residents with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating, and more.
This assistance lets you look and feel your best, so you can enjoy your days. The goal of assisted living is to support your ability to live as independently as possible by making sure the help you need is nearby.
Assisted Living Services
Assisted living services are designed to support and improve your experience with daily tasks. Often this involves help with self-care tasks called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), including:
- Dressing and grooming
- Transferring (moving from one position to another, such as out of bed and into a wheelchair)
Every individual’s needs are unique. While some residents are fully dependent on a health aide to perform these tasks, others only need some stand-by support.
Help Beyond Physical Health
In addition to these tasks, residents may also require a hand with maintaining their independence beyond their physical health. Assisted living services can also encompass help with home living tasks, such as:
- Making phone calls
- Housekeeping and laundry
- Medication management
- Home maintenance
- Bill and money management

Assisted Living vs. Memory Care: Which Is Right for Me?
Assisted living and memory care are available to Fox Hill owners through our trusted healthcare partner Sunrise Senior Living. If you’re choosing between the two types of services, here’s a good guide to get you started.
Memory care is best for those who:
- Need support most of the time
- Can become agitated, confused, lonely, or frightened
- Tend to wander or are otherwise unable to keep themselves safe
- Have family caregivers who are experiencing burnout
In comparison, assisted living is best for those who:
- Need some help at certain times of day

Remember that you don’t have to make this decision on your own. Be sure to discuss these matters with your family members, so that you can get a full perspective on what may be best.
