Retirement communities aim to offer seniors a vibrant living environment – one that is highly sought after by many individuals entering a new stage of their lives. As SeniorHomes.com reports, these active communities promote prolonged independence while providing a strong set of amenities to help support that lifestyle. Fox Run Retirement Community, an Erickson Living property in Novi, Michigan, is one of these premiere communities in demand for its beautiful location, abundant amenities and integrated healthcare and wellness.
The 108-acre campus has more than 1,230 residents who participate in numerous activities and clubs, shop a bustling “Main Street,” which has a bank, grocery store and pharmacy, and even develop their own TV show in the onsite studio. The community’s focus on delivering exceptional customer service and resident amenities is among the reasons why Fox Run chose Xfinity Communities’ solutions to provide residents with robust phone, video, internet and Wi-Fi services.

“Fox Run is one of the top-rated communities by both local and national organizations for its outstanding senior care and services,” said Michael McCormick, executive director at Fox Run. “New residents have a high level of expectation for technology service when they are selecting a retirement community, which is why we continually seek to improve the package we offer.”
Fox Run’s recent addition of services from Xfinity Communities – a specialized Comcast business unit that serves multifamily housing properties, retirement communities and developments – provides Wi-Fi and video services throughout the common areas and in the clubhouses, as well as in individual residential units.
“Xfinity Communities allows us to provide advanced video services that include high-definition TV and a voice-activated remote control – without any additional cost. Additionally, we can offer guests a public Wi-Fi connection when they visit our property, allowing them to stay connected on the go,” continued McCormick.
Michael Slovin, vice president of Xfinity Communities added, “Technology options remain one of the top amenities for retirement communities. As such, we’ve significantly invested in bringing these properties advanced network services that provide residents with high-quality offerings and first-class customer service. Our dedicated customer account representative works closely with the Fox Run community team and residents to address every need and request quickly.”
