Learn More About Independent Living 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.

This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Tuscaloosa retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
