Risk and Retirement

It is important for seniors to ask careful questions as they consider which retirement community is best suited to their needs.  We believe that Sherwood Oaks is among the financially strongest retirement communities in Pittsburgh because:

  1. The Sherwood Oaks Retirement Community has successfully operated for more than 30 years and enjoys an excellent reputation.
  2. The Sherwood Oaks audit shows positive net assets, strong operating income, positive investment returns, and continued investment in capital assets.
  3. Resident satisfaction at Sherwood Oaks, as measured by an outside consulting firm, shows that residents have rated Sherwood Oaks as exceeding national benchmark scores.
  4. The UPMC is our parent company and one of the most financially sound organizations in the region.
  5.  Sherwood Oaks is one of the few Pittsburgh retirement communities to be fully accredited by the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission, www.carf.org.

Although risk is present with any endeavor, we would point out that not living at Sherwood Oaks presents a risk.  We believe that the enjoyment of the amenities, physical security, and the knowledge that unlimited continuing care is guaranteed are wonderful benefits for retirees.
