Our Story


The mission of Capstone Village is to provide premier retirement living in an atmosphere that promotes independence and lifelong learning. We seek to enhance the physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual well-being of our residents, calling upon the resources of a caring professional staff and a cohesive relationship with The University of Alabama.


Nearly 200 years old, The University of Alabama is a beacon of Southern tradition, a world-class university with an invigorating spirit that will excite your sense of fun and adventure.

Imagine the benefits of being close to the campus: watching a competitive football game, attending an evening symphony performance on campus, participating in a lifelong learning course, or enjoying an international art exhibit on the Quad.

With the Capstone Village private van, getting to and from campus is easy, convenient and comfortable.

Another choice of transportation is the University’s campus-wide shuttle bus service, the CrimsonRide, which has a stop right in front of Capstone Village.

The special relationship between the University and Capstone Village allows for a lifestyle filled with advantages. To name a few, you can attend athletic games, audit classes for free, borrow from any campus library, and get complimentary tickets to various events.

You see it in the smiles of the attentive concierge and the friendly support staff. You experience it with convenient transportation to medical appointments and other desired destinations.

At Capstone Village, the vitality of collegiate life is brought right to your doorstep. University students and faculty visit the community to socialize, entertain and learn. Sharing conversations with these bright people is stimulating and they, too, are eager to exchange ideas with individuals who have rich life experiences. The concept of health and wellness has a community-wide emphasis, offering activities to nurture the mind, body, and soul. At the heart of each activity is the proven philosophy that keeping engaged in physical, intellectual and spiritual activities promotes a longer, happier life. Friendships flourish and camaraderie grows with community outings, parties, and interest groups.

You determine your own pace by choosing how much or how little activity you want to join. At Capstone Village, you define your retirement your way.


Your retirement is the result of careful planning and consideration.
