From every window, beauty only found in the Appalachian foothills stretches in a quilt of dappled green, gold and scarlet hardwoods towards shadowed mountains all connected by a shining ribbon of river sparkling in the sun. But it’s our view of retirement that has given this Birmingham, Alabama senior living community a five star rating, and a reputation for being something rare. Set on 120 acres of virgin forest, Kirkwood by the River feels miles away from the sprawl, and stress of the suburbs, yet is minutes to the city’s best shopping, medical centers and cultural venues. And the community stays even closer to the founders’ vision. Kirkwood began as a non-profit created by the Independent Presbyterian Church to offer continuing care retirement of non-paralleled attention to details and advantages. Open to people of all faiths, Kirkwood is the only retirement community in the area to have its own chaplain, and one of the most beautiful stained glass and stone walled chapels found in any community. This spirit of caring is felt in every level of care, from those who prepare the special meals needed by specialty care residents, to the speech and physical therapists, nurses and staff in skilled nursing. But this caring is most evident in how we cater to your spirit. About Community News
