Assisted Living in Birmingham, Alabama

Birmingham, Alabama, located in the northernmost part of the state, is a city rich in history, from the U.S. Civil War through its role as a major iron and steel production center supplying troops in World War One, as documented at the Vulcan Park and Museum. Today, Birmingham is best known as the home of the University of Alabama, a research school with one of the top football programs in the nation. Seniors aged 65 and older make up about 14% of the city’s population of 209,000, and those who choose to retire here can audit classes at the university and watch the famous Crimson Tide on Saturdays in the fall.

Birmingham has hot, humid summers, but the winters are mild, which may bring comfort to seniors who have health conditions aggravated by cold weather. The cost of living in Birmingham is 25% lower than the national average, which may help many seniors stretch their retirement dollars further.

There are approximately 22 assisted living facilities in Birmingham, and the average cost for this type of senior care is $3,645 per month, according to Genworth Financial’s 2019 Cost of Care Survey. However, the price can vary between facilities depending on location and amenities.
