Kirkwood by the River is a nonprofit Life Plan Retirement Community located in Birmingham, Alabama, offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Medicare Rehabilitation. Like the river outside our windows, our community offers a quality of life that flows gently through every season.

Kirkwood was founded as a ministry of Independent Presbyterian Church in 1980 to offer continuing care of unparalleled attention to details and advantages. Open to people of all beliefs, Kirkwood has a full-time chaplain who delivers God’s loving word to residents through weekly Bible Studies and worship services. This spirit of caring is delivered throughout all levels of care, from those who prepare special meals needed by specialty care residents to the speech and physical therapists, nurses, hospitality staff, and administration.

The staff at Kirkwood traditionally has a long retention rate, as our employees embrace the spirit of service, are passionate about senior care and find it an honor to serve the “Greatest Generation.” It is important to our staff to provide an environment of nurture, care, community, fellowship and creative expression so that our residents may maintain as much independence as possible. 

Set on 120 acres on the Cahaba River, our Kirkwood by the River campus allows seniors to experience the serenity of God’s creation while only being minutes from Birmingham’s cultural attractions, hospitals, shopping centers and more.

Seniors and their families, especially children being faced with helping to make decisions for their senior parents, are attracted to our continuing care community for its wide variety of conveniences and amenities designed to enhance residents’ comfort and recovery.
