    I cannot say enough about Sherrill House! My auntie-mom, Dorothy "Tante" Certain, lived very comfortably for five years in her sun-filled room overlooking Huntington Avenue. After searching for some time for the best facility in the region, once my husband and I could no longer accommodate her needs at home, we found the only place with full-time music director on staff. This was important as music had always been an important part of Tante's life, from playing organ at her father's church to teaching all his grandkids, myself included, to play piano. She thrived there until the eve of her 106th birthday, when she made her peaceful transition surrounded by the caring staff and delightful residents that have become our extended family. I now enjoy fond memories, including numerous family gatherings in Sherrill House's gorgeous Great Room, lunching and lounging outside on the beautiful terrace, and proudly enjoying Tante's solos at the annual holiday concert (see photo following the 2015 performance). Sherrill House, I hope you are there for me if/when I require some of your special brand of TLC.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
Sherrill House has not received any fines, complaints, or inspection problems in the last 3 years.

Staffing Levels Per Resident per Day

Medicare determines the expected staffing time per resident per day depending on level of care the residents of Sherrill House require.
