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.

Reviews of Sherwood Oaks
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I visited this facility
We were looking for continuing care and we toured the place because it's near where my son lives. It was very nice. We were not unhappy with it all! It was some kind of a high-end continuing care facility and rather expensive or, it's just that their paying plan is not acceptable to us. Well, the only problem is that the area is just so cold in the winter. We were looking for some place maybe a little warmer.
But we liked the little individual condos that they have. Their dining area was fine and the food was nice. They have many activities there. I particularly like reading and their library. The people there were very nice and friendly. The staff that we met was very nice. We were happy with it and we seriously considered going there. The physical layout of the place is alright but it's just not for us. It's too cold there.
The staffing for Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry, PA is outstanding. According to the Medicare Survey of this facility they exceed the state average of Registered Nursing coverage per patient hours in a day. The residents receive on average of 1 hour of licensed staff per day for their care. This includes a mix of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Certified Nursing Assistants. This is a smaller facility and they often are close to capacity with a total of 60 certified beds available. The location of Sherwood Oaks in the wonderful neighborhood of Cranberry is a great area. The development and continued growth of this area makes it an attractive residence for patients and families to live in. This is a continued care retirement community which does require a greater down payment prior to moving in to Sherwood Oaks. They do however provide the resident with the care that they will need and if the require additional assistance they can move into a more skilled area within the facility.
