Welcome to a fresh idea in assisted living and memory care in Springfield, Illinois

A fulfilling life in a family-friendly community that's Just Like Home.

Whether your loved one just needs a little extra daily help or requires specialized care because of Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss, River Birch Living offers modern living options, a fulfilling lifestyle and high-quality services in a warm Christian environment.

A secure place to live during these evolving times.

We’ve been a trusted partner for Sangamon County families since we opened our doors. And you can rely on us to keep your loved ones safe, comfortable and cared during these extraordinary times.

A scenic setting close to the city.

Although River Birch Living is just minutes from downtown Springfield, our home-like format provides a relaxed "countryside" ambiance. We’re near the Memorial Medical Center, HSHS St. John’s Hospital and the Springfield Clinic, as well as close to shopping, entertainment and churches.

Person-centered care guided by Christian values.

We are passionate about promoting independence, wellness and affordable living for older adults. Our approach reflects biblical standards for morality, ethics, and ministry leadership. Our dedicated staff takes the time to develop close bonds with our residents and helps them achieve their highest levels of independence.

No buy-in fees! An all-inclusive month-to-month rental.

Your loved one will feel right at home at River Birch Living. Our spacious private suites and comfortable studios open onto main interior hallways and inviting living areas, making it easy to socialize and share the fun. And best of all, living here is maintenance-free: One affordable monthly fee covers practically everything.
