Huntsville, Alabama, is home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the second largest research park in the USA. It also has the largest open-air butterfly house and other appealing attractions like The Huntsville Museum of Art. Seniors will find many other fun things to do in this high-tech town. 

In Huntsville, assisted living facilities are regulated by the Alabama Department of Public Health and are defined as facilities with a minimum of two residents. The Huntsville area has 11 assisted living facilities for seniors to choose from, 6 are located right in Huntsville, while the other 5 are located in the surrounding communities of Madison and Hazel Green. All facilities provide personal care including assistance with the activities of daily living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Huntsville

  • The overall cost of living in Huntsville is 8.6 percent lower than the US national average, making it an excellent location for seniors who are on a budget. This low cost of living can be attributed specifically to the cost of housing, groceries and transportation.

  • Huntsville's public transportation system offers a variety of safe options for seniors to travel throughout the city including a shuttle bus, free ride matching and vanpools. Seniors with disabilities may also be able to receive transportation from Huntsville's Handi-Ride system, which is available on weekdays.

  • Huntsville has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with only one major hospital in the Huntsville area.
     
  • During the summers in Huntsville, the weather is hot and humid, which can be uncomfortable for some seniors. 

  • The crime rate in Huntsville is among the highest in the state. The violent crime rate is more than double the national average, while the property crime rate is close to double.

Seniors may be eligible for an optional supplement when residing in specified living arrangements, but those who reside in assisted living facilities are not eligible for this supplement.
