Freedom, Fun & Financial Security
Sherwood Oaks stands apart from other communities because it was started by people who would become its first residents. Drive onto the gated campus and see the lovely gardens and lakes. Enter the Community Center and take note of the 7,000 volume library, and the woodshop, ceramic and art studios comprising thousands of square feet. Speak with residents and learn about the committees they serve on that govern campus entertainment, continued learning, health care and dining.
Sherwood Oaks was conceived in a culture of self-governance, and this culture continues today. This wonderful place to live is customized for maximum personal independence and health.
There’s so much more to living on one of the best retirement campuses than simply having a lovely patio home residence with interesting neighbors. At Sherwood Oaks you can continue your way of life – just with more conveniences. We have seen that residents often feel more independent once they move in and are freed from household chores, and have the freedom to read, swim, volunteer and share their life stories with new-found friends.
