Directions to River Birch Living

Small house living at River Birch Living, located in the heart of Springfield, IL, is intentionally designed to be person-directed and relationship-rich.

This revolutionary model of support offers assisted living and memory support in a home-like open floor plan design with intimate living rooms that cultivate conversation and central dining spaces where residents gather over delicious meals.

Here, residents live life on their own terms. Schedules are resident-led so there’s plenty of opportunity to connect with neighbors, explore new interests or retreat to your private bedroom. Associates support the entire house and assist residents with daily activities (ADLs) like getting around, medication management, dressing, eating, bathing and more – the same care you’d find in traditional assisted living.

We focus on development—helping residents live life with meaning and purpose and on their terms through whole person wellness. If Mom wants to continue to help in the kitchen, or if Dad is looking for someone to talk football with, we’re here to support them. The results of this groundbreaking type of living are incredible. Residents feel more empowered to engage and connect and are supported to live independently for as long as possible, even through challenging health conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Our Pathway Memory Support® program responds to the experience of dementia by embracing contemporary best-practices along with enhanced associate training, creative approaches to care, and a focus on activity and engagement.

Small house living in a home-like environment means no long hallways, no cafeteria meals, no institutionalization. Instead, what’s left is whole person support, wrapped in a warm, family atmosphere. Suites start at $3,255 monthly and vary based on services needed. Learn more and contact our experts today at 217.262.1741.

The River Birch Living Difference is Clear

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.

Here for the Springfield community.

At River Birch Living, we’ve listened to the needs of the next generation of Baby Boomer retirees and the older adults throughout Springfield and central Illinois. That’s why we’ve designed our community to help older adults find new horizons through independence, purposeful opportunities and life on their own terms.

Faith-Led and Person First

We are proud to be part of Christian Horizons, a faith-led, person-first organization.
The needs of those we serve are always at the forefront and instead of answering to shareholders, our profits are reinvested directly into our campus and services for improved programming, continued renovations, upkeep, fair wages for associates and peace of mind that we’ll always do the right thing for those we serve.

We serve people of all faiths and denominations with innovative and intuitive offerings that empower older adults in mind, body and spirit.
