What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sherwood

When it was founded in 1889, Sherwood was originally called Smockville, but no one, not even the Smock family, liked the name, so they voted for the change of name. In Sherwood, seniors have a choice of two assisted living facilities, with another 58 available in nearby cities of Portland, Beaverton and Tuallitin. These assisted living communities all provide room and board to seniors in a comfortable residential setting. Personal care services offered typically include medication management as well as help with daily living activities. All assisted care facilities in Oregon are licensed by the state's Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sherwood

  • Sherwood residents can get around town on the bus lines run by the TriMet Transit Agency, which is based in Portland. Seniors are eligible for half-price passes. Yamhill County Transit Area buses connect Sherwood with McMinnville and Newberg.

  • The Sherwood area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, and Providence Portland Medical Center, all of which are in neighboring Portland, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Weather in Sherwood is very rainy throughout most of the year, with a few dry months during the summer when seniors can put away their umbrellas. Temperatures stay relatively mild all year, though snow or freezing rain can occur during winter.

  • The cost of living in Sherwood is 42.2 percent higher than the average cost of living in the country, making it a good choice for seniors who have an ample retirement budget.

  • Sherwood has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Marjorie Stewart Community Center, an organization that provides exercise classes and health support programs.

  • The Sherwood Center for the Arts serves as a gathering place for art lovers throughout the city. The center features regular gallery exhibits, art classes for all ages, screenings of classic films that seniors may remember from their childhood and performances celebrating cultural diversity. In addition, many local theatrical and musical groups partner with the center for performances, and visiting artists put on shows.
