Independent Living in Alabama

Overview of Independent Living in Alabama

Families searching for senior living in Alabama will be welcomed by a mild climate and a variety of lifestyle options. In the state’s northern counties, the Tennessee River and Appalachian Mountains pass through and provide an abundance of beautiful scenery and opportunities for outdoor activities. Temperatures rise gradually as you head south toward the coast, where the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores attract millions of visitors throughout the year. Cities like Biloxi and Birmingham have been experiencing a recent population growth due to their Southern charm, pleasant weather, and relatively low costs of living, all factors which help make Alabama an ideal retirement destination.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 60 independent living communities, sometimes simply called retirement communities, in Alabama.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Alabama is about $2,100.
