Independent Living

Capstone Village provides residents the freedom to enjoy active living and easy access to lifelong learning at its finest. Our caring staff, lifestyle amenities and commitment to safety are unmatched. You don’t have to be an Alabama fan to join our community, but you may become one!

You may choose to enjoy your retirement in an apartment or a garden home. Both options provide you with a maintenance-free lifestyle. Our professional staff handles all maintenance of your residence, such as appliance repairs and changing of air filters, etc. You can enjoy a hassle-free living experience without worrying about the upkeep. When needs arise, you simply call the concierge to put in a work order and we do the rest. Concierge services, controlled access and 24-hour first responders provide an extra layer of security and convenience for all of our residents.

All Independent Living residences include full size appliances and a stackable washer/dryer. We have a deeply discounted contract rate for cable/wifi service. Let’s explore the differences between apartment and garden home living:

Apartment Living:

  • A Variety of Floor Plans: Our 13 apartment floor plans have unique features, allowing you to choose the space that best suits your needs. Some prefer the higher ceilings, while others may long for a private balcony.
  • Dining Plans: Monthly rates for apartment residents include one main meal per day for each resident. Complimentary coffee and pastry pairings are also provided each morning.
  • Housekeeping Services: Bi-weekly housekeeping services are provided by our friendly staff.
  • Community Living: Apartments typically offer a more communal living experience. Residents share common areas such as hallways, lobbies, and social spaces.
  • Utilities Included: Monthly fees include all utility expenses.
  • Close Proximity: Apartments are situated within our larger complex, making it easier to access on-site amenities and events without having to leave the building

Garden Home Living:

  • Privacy and Space: Garden homes provide a more private and spacious living experience. Enjoy more outdoor space, such as a backyard or patio.
  • Yard and Landscaping: Lawncare and landscaping is provided by The University of Alabama. With a garden home, you have the freedom to personalize your outdoor space with potted plants. Should you enjoy more gardening, you can reserve a raised bed in the community garden area.
  • Garage and Driveway: Each garden home comes with a one car garage, offering convenient parking right at your doorstep. Driveways have ample space for an additional vehicle.
  • Utilities Not Included: Power and Gas bills are at the resident’s expense.
  • Neighborhood Living: Garden homes are an excellent choice for those who are ready to reduce the burden of managing a large home while still experiencing the benefits of a neighborhood.

Whichever option you choose, we’re committed to providing a comfortable and enjoyable living experience. Your decision between an apartment and a garden home ultimately depends on your lifestyle preferences and needs. At Capstone Village, we’re here to help you find the perfect housing solution tailored to your individual desires. Please contact us for more information or to schedule a tour to explore your options.
