From the Provider
With its indoor heated swimming pool, fitness center and expansive, green campus, Sherwood Oaks is planning for the next generation of retirees. The retirement community opened in 1982 after careful planning by a grassroots effort of retirees who wanted to give themselves and their friends the option to stay in the Pittsburgh area during their retirement. After years of studying other communities, they patterned Sherwood Oaks after the best of what they had observed during their travels.
Today, the retirement community has a renovated Community Center, an expanded wellness program, more dining options and is currently providing services to the next generation of retirees, including:
- Excellent ratings by the Center for Medicare Services
- Lake-view walking trails
- Healthy dining choices
- Indoor heated lap swimming pool and Jacuzzi
- Therapeutic massage
- Exercise, Tai Chi and Yoga classes
- Fully-equipped Fitness Center
- Newly constructed apartments and patio home residences
Throughout these changes, however, Sherwood Oaks continues as a community where active retirees enjoy the benefits of a secure, independent lifestyle with the backup of on-site health care and unlimited nursing care.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My husband and I helped my grandmother move into this facility over a year ago. She lived alone and we were worried about her, so she chose to move here. I was pleasantly surprised by the facility. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and they seemed to want to be involved in the residents lives and activities. My grandmother loves her living quarters, and likes that she has the freedom to do a lot of activies, but also has medical care and help with daily living if needed.The grounds have lots to do, so my grandmother is never complaining about being bored. There's swimming, jacuzzi, walking trails, fitness facilities, yoga classes, and more. She is more active here than she was at home! Overall we are very pleased with the facility. When I get older, I would probably look into this myself if I needed it.
Visited this facility
My husband and I helped my ailing father move into this facility after taking a tour of several other facilities in the area. What prompted us to choose this facility was all the unique amenities it offered as well as how warm and friendly the staff were.
At first, I was worried that he would be lonely or not have anything to do but, every time I visit him, he is always involved in some activity. He loves their Yoga and exercise classes and he spends a lot of time in their pool.
The facility is always very clean and well maintained when I visit and the staff actually seems interested in interacting with their guests and residents. This is the type of facility I want to be in when I need assisted living.
