“I enjoy living here. It’s given me a complete feeling of comfort. It’s nice to share a home with others because you are never alone.” ~ Janice R.

Kirkside SignWhat is Kirkside?
Kirkside at North Branch, sponsored by North Branch Reformed Church, is a licensed boarding home located in a park like setting on property adjacent to the church. It is a shared home for five adults who, for one reason or another, desire not to live alone, but instead seek the companionship and reduced cost of living in a family-style setting.  Residents must be 62 or older, ambulatory without the use of assistive devices, alert enough to live without supervision, and willing to try group living.

It emphasizes cooperation and continued personal involvement, which in turn allows the individual to remain in the community. Kirkside is non-sectarian, and members of all faiths are welcome.
