A History of Improving the Lives of God’s “Older Children”

Methodist Homes of Alabama & Northwest Florida had its beginnings in 1956. Founded as a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of God’s “older children” by providing safe, affordable housing and senior living and healthcare in Alabama and Northwest Florida, we were originally known as Methodist Home for the Aging. Since then, Methodist Homes has become one of Alabama’s largest integrated wellness and health networks for people 62 years of age or older. Some communities welcome people beginning at age 55.

Innovator in Senior Housing and Care

Affiliated with the North Alabama and Alabama-West Florida Conferences, our stable nonprofit organization is a respected innovator in senior housing and care. We create loving, life-enriching, spiritually based communities that serve older adults and provide peace of mind for their loved ones. Within our walls, we are resident-focused, anticipating and meeting their needs. Beyond our walls, we reach out to the community with our knowledge and skills.

Today, Methodist Homes has grown to include thirteen retirement communities in nine cities, providing a home to more than 1,300 people at a critical time in their lives. Our communities provide a breadth of services including independent living, assisted living, rehabilitation, long-term nursing care, Alzheimer’s/dementia care and affordable housing. Whatever your needs, you are sure to find a Methodist Homes community to fit both your lifestyle and your budget.
