Assisted Living in Huntsville, Alabama

Nestled in the tail end of the Appalachian Mountains, Huntsville is one of the largest cities in Alabama. It’s best known as the location of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, with a museum commemorating the U.S. Space Program. For seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors, the Huntsville Botanical Gardens is a popular spot, open year-round with special events throughout the year.

Although Huntsville is one of Alabama’s larger cities, giving seniors access to many advanced medical care options and other big-city amenities, it retains a small-town feel. Warm, humid summers and winters with occasional snow make Huntsville pleasant for seniors who may be sensitive to colder temperatures. A cost of living lower than the national average and state income tax breaks for seniors are other reasons that retirees may find Huntsville an attractive place to call home. Out of a population of 201,000, 16% are seniors aged 65 and older. This is a demographic that will likely need to move into assisted living facilities as their ability to live independently changes.

The average monthly cost for assisted living in Hunstville is $3,900, although costs between facilities can vary, depending on location and amenities offered.
