We lived at Foxdale Village for 10 years. We had our own doctor, our own total care, assisted living, and independent living. It met all our needs. It was sparkling clean, and the public bathrooms were unbelievably clean. The food was excellent. None of the activities were run by the Foxdale people. We have 19 committees, and we all did that ourselves. If you have an interest, you can start a group. The staff was excellent. They had quite an extensive library, activity rooms, meeting rooms, auditorium, and swimming pool, and they're going to build a bocce place because some residents want it. It's well run. The independent living had homes joining each other and divided into neighborhood and ours was particularly close. We had 12 homes in that neighborhood. The assisted living was down in the main building and ate with us in the same restaurant. We can call in or the health office for medicine, and it's delivered to our home. If you need a refill, you just call up the pharmacy, and they bring it out to you. They also had medical service where people come to the apartment in the morning between 6:00 and 8:00 in the morning, and they knock on your door and take a sample of whatever is required. If you don't feel like getting up, they'll come take it in your bed, so you don't even have to get up, you just roll over and go back to sleep. I've never heard of any place doing that, but it's really nice to have that there.
Foxdale Village is run by the Quakers and it is also a not-for-profit place. I definitely decided I want to go to one of the numerous CCRCs operated by the Quakers. I have always liked the Friends' Society, so it makes sense for me to go to one of their facilities. The location of Foxdale Village is also convenient for me. I have one son who lives in State College and I'm trying to find a place that I like that can be close enough to my children, so they can come and visit me fairly regularly. Plus it is a lovely facility! They have lots of activities. Unfortunately they don't have a swimming pool, although I would still recommend this place. The staff is very nice. We got a lovely tour. As we were touring, I needed to stop and rest on one of their benches outside. While we're there resting, residents kept coming up and saying, "You need to come here, we really hope you come here, it's wonderful!" It wasn't a pre-arranged stuff and it was people who were walking by on their daily businesses, but everybody was very friendly and very happy with this place.
This retirement community is unlike anything i have ever seen before. my girlfriends family comes from money so its not hard to believe that they take care of their own.this place has 2 grand dinning rooms complete with waitresses and other wait staff. this place is for the super wealthy. and everyone is treated exceptionally.every single aspect of your stay here is luxury. it is extremely clean and bright and the staff take great care and pride in what they do there. the grandmother never had a single complaint.neither did here mom who spent alot of time there herself.every time we went there they always had some sort of interactive event that everyone could get involved in.The two big very nice brick buildings that house foxdale village are of the highest quality with huge glass windows in the dinning hall. this place was absolutly amazing and i truly believe that anyone who has ever been there will only have good things to say about it.
