My husband and I wanted to make the decision ourselves as to where we would spend our retirement years rather than our children (or others) making that decision for us.  At Sherwood Oaks we are assured of all the help we need from very compassionate, kind people.  Also, you can be busy and involved in many fun activities, if you’d like.  At Sherwood Oaks we have a wonderful standard of living!  Our three children told us this was the “best gift we’d ever given them.”
