What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hayden

Hayden, Alabama, located 30 miles from Birmingham, offers a small-town environment in close proximity to the city life. Fewer than 1,500 people live in Hayden, so local amenities are limited. However, the area does have accommodations for senior citizens, including assisted living facilities, which serve three or more residents in home-like settings. Residents have 15 assisted living facilities to choose from, with two in Hayden and 13 others in local cities, including Birmingham, Trussville and Cullman.

  • The year-round climate in Hayden is moderately comfortable, with 209 sunny days per year. The area gets about 56 inches of rain each year, which is higher than average for the U.S. and may put a damper on outdoor activities for senior residents.
