When her husband and high school sweetheart was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, Anne Moore knew the decision to move from their family home would eventually be inevitable. After some time, the East Aurora natives sold their large home to moved into a smaller house, but they just weren’t receiving the help or care they needed.
It wasn’t until they spoke with mutual friends that they began looking at other options for post-retirement living. When their plans to move into a residence in East Aurora fell through, they decided to consider life at Fox Run.
The Moores were in talks with Fox Run before it was even finished, and they were some of the community’s first residents to move in. They were able to have a lot of say in the customization of their apartment, a benefit that most Community Members would agree is a major benefit of moving to Fox Run. This was a big draw for the couple, but not as influential as the proximity of the community to their beloved hometown of East Aurora.
After their move, when Mr. Moore’s health began to deteriorate, the medical opportunities at Fox Run proved to be a wonderful solution. Since his passing, Anne has remained a Community Member at Fox Run, where she loves the people – particularly the staff and administration.
Life at Fox Run is different from the other facilities the Moores visited during their decision-making process in many ways. With no set dining times, assigned seatings, or mandatory activities, Anne truly enjoys her freedom and independence here.
And the most enjoyable part about living at Fox Run? The fact that she considers it to be a gift to her children.
“They don’t have to worry now,” she says, “Mom’s taken care of.”
