Alabama independent living communities are great for seniors who prefer warmer climates with quiet country living. Alabama is one of the top states for independent living facilities, and this is due partly to the state’s mild winters and low crime rate, plus its affordable living costs. Alabama also offers geographic diversity to seniors choosing an independent living community, for one can find senior independent living facilities on the warm beaches of the Gulf Shore, or choose a retirement home situated in the picturesque mountains located in north Alabama. One can also enjoy a small town atmosphere, and Alabama has many lakes where seniors can enjoy a relaxing day of fishing or a weekend trip.

For Southern hospitality and charm, Alabama independent living communities in Huntsville cannot be beat.

Here, seniors can soak up the country atmosphere of Madison County, while enjoying the convenience of being close to medical care facilities and shopping centers, thanks to the city of Huntsville.

The independent living community is usually gated, as well, for added security and peace of mind.
