This senior community is right off the highway on the edge of DC"”located in a beautiful wooded area, with ample parking for residents and guests.
This is all independent living in condominiums that residents who are 60 and older can buy into if they're able to live independently. Assisted living and memory care are offered in a separate wing from the independent living.
There's a nice welcoming feel to the place. Visitors are offered something to drink and ushered to a beautiful library area when they arrive.
I nearly fell over walking in; it looks so different from the typical "senior living" housing. This is luxury living"”from the pages of an architectural design magazine. It looks like something that belongs in the Caribbean"”nicely decorated, with crown molding, modern appliances and granite countertops in the kitchens, and other lovely touches throughout.
It seems to be a very social place. Many of the residents gather and talk with one another in the common areas. There are gardens and manicured lawns.
It has several fine dining restaurants on the premises, including a café, casual and more formal settings"”and many activities and amenities are offered on the campus, including a fitness area, and spa, art and ceramics, even a driving range and a Performing Arts Center.
The independent living unit is staffed with some caregivers in a health center, but most residents are fairly mobile and hearty. The facility is also located fairly close to some good hospitals and medical facilities for those in need.
Fox Hill is convenient for those who want the security of knowing they can age in place.
Depending on the size of the unit and how it's designed, the cost ranges from $400,000 to well over a million. Large walk-in closets, nice foyers and outdoor patios are possible. That's expensive, but when you compute the cost of monthly care in many places, it may not be such a bad bargain.
