The Ackerly at Sherwood Brings Five-Star Fun with New Senior Living Community

This summer, there’s a new senior living community opening in Sherwood, OR where residents can expect Five-Star Fun every day. The Ackerly at Sherwood is a premium community designed to keep seniors thriving in an independent or assisted living environment packed with amenities.

The Ackerly stands out from the moment you step inside. The bright, modern design creates a resort-like feel, according to General Manager Kirby Blankenship. “It’s just a happy place,” he emphasizes. “It’s like a cruise ship on land.” The open communal lounges facilitate a friendly environment where residents can socialize, play games and enjoy their retirement.

“It’s a real 180-degree twist on what people think senior living will look like,” adds Sales Manager Beth Eisenberg-Schapera.

This five-star spirit extends to all aspects of the facility, especially the dining. Head Chef John Morris has accumulated over 20 years of experience as an instructor at Le Cordon Bleu and chef at Portland Steak and Chophouse to deliver delectable on-site dining choices in a high-end restaurant environment.

“Our community is filled with people who know good food, expect exceptional quality and appreciate the gift of the table,” Morris observes. “I am genuinely excited to work at The Ackerly at Sherwood, a Leisure Care community that really understands the importance of great food and great hospitality to our community members.”

And while there’s plenty to enjoy in the community itself, residents also have the freedom to explore all of the attractions in the area. The Ackerly is located right in historic Sherwood, providing close proximity to a wide variety of restaurants and places to shop, like Bridgeport Village, which is home to plenty of stores, salons and even a movie theater. Portland is also just down the road for an even wider range of possibilities. When residents need assistance with getting there, bus and town car service is provided for easy transportation back and forth to these destinations.

There are also several places nearby to get active outside. Residents can soak up the sun and walk with friends through Pioneer City Park and Langer Park, or visit the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge to take in some scenic views and enjoy nature.

For seniors looking to maintain an active lifestyle, there are many opportunities on-site. The Ackerly is home to a PrimeFit Gym, where the staff, led by Fitness Director Nate Guidagni, takes a holistic approach to help each member reach their fitness goals with an exercise program that is customized to their specific needs. Guidagni is the creator of Bo Yoga, which combines yoga, qi gong and meditation for a relaxing and mindful workout. Residents will also find group fitness classes, walking programs and other fun health and wellness activities that provide something for everyone to enjoy.

“The idea is to give you as much independence as possible for as long as possible,” Eisenberg-Schapera explains.

Starting on July 1st, residents will begin moving into apartments with over 20 different spacious floor plans available. The ultimate goal, Blankenship and Eisenberg say, is to accommodate residents’ diverse and evolving needs with minimal disruption.

“You don’t have to move when your needs change,” Eisenberg-Schapera emphasizes. “All of our apartments are designed for Independent living which includes full kitchens with GE appliances, and washers and dryers and they are also licensed for assisted living, allowing residents to age in place.” Memory care services are also available in the community to create a supportive environment for everyone, no matter what kind of care they require.

So how can you become part of the exciting community at The Ackerly at Sherwood? Apartments are expected to fill up quickly, so you won’t want to wait. For those ready to act now, there are plenty of benefits. As part of the Trailblazer Club, early adopting residents will enjoy:
