When choosing a senior living community for yourself or someone you love, there are many things to consider. The levels of care a community provides, what amenities and activities they offer, and arguably one of the most important aspects, location, all factor into this important decision.
Our team at Community Senior Life (CSL) understands that moving into a senior living community is a significant decision, and we want to help your family find the right community. To do this, we’re highlighting exceptional senior living options throughout Alabama.
Why Choose Senior Living in Alabama?
Low Cost of Living
According to the World Population Review, “Alabama has a cost of living index of 87.9, the third-lowest in the country.” While utility and grocery prices are closer to the national average, housing and taxes are among the lowest in the nation.
Speaking of taxes, in Alabama, “neither Social Security nor pension income is taxed in the state (Retire Guide®).” This is especially beneficial for individuals who plan to use these resources as a part of their income.
Another benefit of choosing senior living in Alabama is the mild climate. With an average daily high temperature above 69 degrees in the warm season and an average daily high temperature below 40 degrees in the cold season, the state of Alabama offers retirees a mild climate year-round.
Small-Town Living & Beautiful Scenery
Part of the charm of retiring in Alabama is the small-town living with convenient access to nature and beautiful scenery. Wherever you go in the state, you are never far from being able to connect with the great outdoors.
Some of our favorite places to visit include:
