Meet One of Our Residents

Tom Shepard visited 15 retirement communities, took copious notes, and built a weighted decision analysis in Excel. So he was pretty certain he’d made the right decision when he moved to this retirement community pa, Sherwood Oaks. “I found Sherwood Oaks to be the best in terms of facility, services and financial strength of some 15 retirement communities I visited,” says Tom. “An added advantage is that it’s close to my daughter’s home.”

His biggest concern, however, was whether he would tolerate the northern winters at retirement communities in pa after a lifetime of living in the south.

Tom has found this retirement community pa, Sherwood Oaks, to be even more than he expected. He enjoys singing, reading, woodworking and physical fitness activities, and a very warm winter coat has helped him adjust to Pittsburgh’s climate.
