for a local advisor

Kirkwood by the River was founded as a nonprofit in 1980 by Independent Presbyterian Church to offer Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Medicare Rehabilitation. Set on 120 acres on the Cahaba River, 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.

The beauty of Kirkwood's natural setting, the attention to detail that every residents receives from our attentive staff, and the emphasis that is placed on creating a happy, engaging and loving home is what makes Kirkwood by the River the best retirement community in Birmingham.
