Kirkwood by the River in Birmingham, AL
5.0

My parents moved into Kirkwood by the River 9 years ago and I've NEVER had a complaint about anything. This is the best run and kindest retirement place anyone could ever find. The entire staff are kind, thoughtful, patient and courteous. A wonderful place in a great setting with Christian beliefs and attitude!!

Fair Haven Retirement Community in Birmingham, AL

There have been some issues with the billing but I'm having a meeting with them this week to get that resolved. Based on our experience I would recommend them.

Oaks on Parkwood in Bessemer, AL
3.9

I really like that the facility is all on one level. The staff seem to keep a great eye on both of my parents. They are great with communication and keep my well informed. They were one of the most reasonably priced and the pricing is all inclusive. They are doing a great job with my parents and we are pleased. We have been very happy with our choice and would highly recommend them to other families.

The park features statues of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as well as other celebrated civil rights figures, along with sculptures dedicated to the movement’s history.
