Nursing Homes 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.

There are more than 50 nursing homes in Alabama. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Alabama to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Alabama is about $6,800, according to Genworth.

What are nursing homes?

Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing facilities, provide long-term care for seniors with significant physical or mental health conditions, and short-term care to people recovering from an injury or hospital stay.

  • Help with personal care
  • Rehabilitation care, including physical and speech therapy
  • Mobility assistance
  • Palliative and hospice care
  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision

Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities. It is not used to indicate that the facility meets official state requirements for level of care of a skilled nursing facility, as defined in that particular jurisdiction. :D
