EPISCOPAL HOUSING OF BIRMINGHAM INC dba Episcopal Place
November 15, 2012

The Episcopal Place is truly a remarkable environment. It's supported by a caring and loving staff, who makes certain each resident remains independent and valued. The residents are former artists, actors, painters, writers, nurses, nuns, veterans, truck drivers, and governments workers all living their lives in this lovely environment off Highland Avenue. As the Activities Director, I get to see them during some fun times, but also see the challenges that come with aging while maintaining a sense of dignity. The Episcopal Place is a true jewel of a place.

EPISCOPAL HOUSING OF BIRMINGHAM INC dba Episcopal Place
November 8, 2010

In my short time as a member of the staff here at The Episcopal Place, I've been overwhelmed at the impact the programs offered to the residents have on their overall well being. For instance, Martha, one of my favorite residents, has learning disabilitles and was unable to live in an unsupervised environment. She comes to all the creative activities offered ( in fact, she's the first one to sign up) and I've noticed her speech and self confidence have improved remarkably. She feels safe, nutured, and loved, and it's a joy to watch her day by day. The Episcopal Place is a haven and home, a safe place to be.

The Great!
