    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brewton

    • In Brewton, seniors do not pay state income tax on pension income or Social Security benefits, which may leave more money in the assisted living budget of some retirees. Income from retirement savings accounts is fully taxable. 
    • The Brewton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Public transportation in Brewton is provided courtesy of the Escambia County Alabama Transit System. ECATS operates an Area Agency on Aging route, which gives seniors access to senior services offices. 
    • With an overall cost of living that is nearly a quarter below the U.S. average and roughly 10% below the statewide average, Brewton is an affordable place to live and may be a good option for seniors looking for economical assisted living options.  
      • Brewton's overall crime rate is higher than the nationwide average. On a 100-point scale, with a higher score representing more crime, the city's violent crime is rated 41.0 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 57.0 compared to the national average of 35.4. Seniors may want to seek out an assisted living facility with safety features like controlled access and alarm systems.
