Concierge & Companion Care
A loved ones transition from their home to a memory care residence is a difficult time in a families life and can seem overwhelming. We understand the importance of familiarity and sense of belonging. Fox Trail is here to help and offer you peace of mind.
Our Concierge and Companion Care Program is designed to acclimate your loved one during his/her first 30-days of residence by familiarizing them with the comforts of their new home and gently introducing them to the many wonderful benefits of day-to-day living here at Fox Trail.
The concierge program offers a new resident the opportunity to transition into our community with a designated partner every step of the way, from the first day to the 30th day and beyond if utilized in conjunction with our companion program.
We welcome new residents with a designated team member specifically dedicated to:
- assist with the logistical details of moving in
- facilitate introductions with staff and other residents
- coordinate care services and daily schedules
- acquaint with various wellness programs and activities
All based upon the resident’s wishes.
In addition, a keepsake book, “Living Life Well” with pictures, words, photographs and quotes will be gifted to the family after the 30-day experience.
Concierges offer extended services and amenities beyond activities of daily living to a new resident. The service offers a sole person to communicate with, designated to them and their particular needs and interests. Whether it be unpacking and settling in on the first day, assistance arranging and setting up their room, being escorted to a daily meal, or relaxing in good company with a good book, a card game or just the comfort felt while watching television next to someone.
After successfully transitioning into our communities, many family members choose to add Companion Care services for their loved one.
The companion program can be coupled with the concierge program or utilized independently. The desired number of hours of companionship is based on family discretion. The intent of this service is to enhance the camaraderie and socialization that is so vitally important to our residents and their health. The companion program allows for one-on-one socialization and activity participation. It engages residents on a personal level, allows them independence away from the group should they so desire and promotes further an overall state of contentment.
Relationships develop between the families and the concierge/companion that facilitate security and trust. It truly enhances the quality of care, communication and strongly solidifies the foundation every resident move in should aspire to be.

My dad has been at Fox Trail in Chester for almost 2 years now and we are very happy with the facility. We love the team. It definitely feels like a family. There may not be a lot of activities that the residents can participate in, but they do their best. They have outside people come in for entertainment and although my dad can't recall a lot of things, he does remember some of them! We just could not take care of my dad at home any longer and we feel so lucky to have found Fox Trail where he can live a safe, content life. The staff is especially receptive to any questions and/or suggestions we have and they are wonderful communicating directly with us.
