Customer Reviews

A nice place

This community offers a lot of activities and they do have entertainers come in. The community is beautiful. Dad seems to like the food and they accommodate his dietary likes. The staff are encouraging, friendly and we have good communication. I would recommend this community.

Nice, but not impressive

We toured this location when we were looking into options for my parents. It was a nice enough looking place, but it just didn't impress us compared to others that we had seen in the area. The person who helped us with our tour and interview process didn't seem entirely prepared, and honestly we felt she was much too young and wasn't able to relate to the concerns we had. Another issue I had with this location was that the apartments we were shown as options were located much too far from the dining room, my parents would have spent half the day getting to and from dinner.

From the Community

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.
