Research Shows #1 Reason Why Retirees Move to a Retirement Community

Our most recent survey of residents shows that the #1 reason why retirees move to Sherwood Oaks is the availability of guaranteed, on-site health care.  “Retirees really want to plan for their futures,” remarks Mark D. Bondi, President and CEO of Sherwood Oaks, “and securing convenient and top notch health care is a prime consideration for where they want to live.”

In 2009 Sherwood Oaks undertook a major expansion of health care services.  The Oak Grove Center, a 30 bed care facility was recently completed that offers private, personal care to persons suffering with memory loss.  In addition, renovation is currently underway to the community’s skilled nursing facility.  These changes will provide residents with private rooms that are organized in a home-like setting.  The renovations to nursing care are expected to be completed in 2011.

“These renovations are a wonderful benefit to persons considering a move to Sherwood Oaks” concludes Bondi, “although you may not need health care now – you want to be prepared for what life has in store for you in the future.”

Our next story will discuss the reasons why retirees decide not to move to a retirement community-PA facility.  Stay tuned.
