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 well into retirement.

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

At Capstone Village, the vitality of collegiate life is brought right to your doorstep. University students and faculty visit our independent and assisted living community to socialize, entertain and learn. Sharing conversations with these bright people is stimulating, and they are eager to exchange ideas with retirees who have rich life experiences.

Transportation around campus is easy and convenient. With the Capstone Village private van, riding is comfortable for active seniors. The University’s campus-wide shuttle bus service, the CrimsonRide, provides another option with a stop located in front of Capstone Village.

The special relationship between the University and Capstone Village allows for active aging and an independent lifestyle filled with advantages. This is not the retirement home of yesteryear.

Capstone Village is steeped in Southern hospitality, from the grand dining room, to the warm smiles of the friendly staff and the convenient transportation to medical appointments and other desired destinations.

Health and wellness has a community-wide emphasis, offering senior-friendly activities to nurture the mind, body and soul. At the heart of each activity is the proven philosophy that staying engaged in physical, intellectual and spiritual activities during retirement 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.
