Continuing Care

SEASONS TURN IN A COMMUNITY YOU CAN TURN TO

Continuing Care lets you leave your anxieties behind, knowing you won’t leave your friends, community and family to get a higher level of care. Kirkwood’s reputation for meeting high expectations for our independent and assisted living residents, becomes even more evident as needs change. Our skilled nursing and special memory units offer the best medical care and technology available, so not only will you never have to leave to get the right care. You won’t have to leave to get the best care. You can always deal with the unexpected and in a community that is unsurpassed.

 

CONTINUING CARE IS FOR THOSE WHO CARE THE MOST

For couples who have spent a lifetime together, life in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is especially attractive. Should one spouse need the services provided in another part of our community, the other can easily visit any time of day. This lets couples continue to share meals, favorite activities and the pleasure of each other’s company knowing that their loved one is receiving the services they need to thrive and maintain as much independence as possible.

 

INCLUDING THOSE YOU CARED FOR

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. As their loved one’s condition progresses and they move through different care levels, our staff works closely with them and their physicians to transition their loved one to the most appropriate senior care setting.

Like the river outside our windows, Kirkwood’s Continuing Care living offers a quality of life that flows gently through every season, reflecting each season’s sparkle and color. As a leading Continuing Care community in Birmingham, Alabama and one of the few offering all four levels of senior care, you and your family can meet whatever comes while living in the community you’ve come to love.

From residents to caregivers, those who call our community home can best describe the Kirkwood by the River experience. Hear in their own words what it is about our community that most spoke to them. Listen.
