Learn More About Care Homes in Tuscaloosa, AL

Roll Tide! Home of the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa boasts thousands of die-hard college football fans who live and breathe the sport, echoing chants across the city and making game days impossible to miss. Off campus, residents have all the resources and services of a modern city readily available, including diverse shopping and dining options, health care facilities, and public transportation. Museums, arts centers, and festivals — like the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center and the Kentuck Festival of the Arts — celebrate Tuscaloosa’s local history, culture, and community.

In Tuscaloosa, residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Tuscaloosa, AL

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $2,200 in the state of Alabama. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
