    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mc Calla

    McCalla, which is located in the north-central region of Alabama, is home to the Iron & Steel Museum of Alabama, where visitors can learn about iron-making in the 19th century. This community has a little over 16,000 residents and a senior community that makes up roughly 15% of the total population.

    Local seniors have more than a dozen assisted living facilities in the McCalla region to choose from, including two within McCalla and 11 more nearby. In this region, as in all of the state, assisted living facilities are licensed by the Department of Public Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mc Calla

    • McCalla seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security income or disbursements from government or private pensions. However, income drawn from retirement savings accounts is fully taxable.
    • The McCalla area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Bessemer.
    • The American Lung Association gives Jefferson County, where McCalla is located, an F for ozone pollution and an A for short-term particle pollution, as well as a passing score for annual particle pollution. Because a region's air quality can significantly impact residents' quality of life, seniors may want to talk to their doctors about how McCalla's air quality could affect their health. 
    • Summer highs in McCalla reach into the 90s, which may be a concern for seniors who prefer mild climates. Winters are chilly with lows in the low 30s, and the area receives just 1 inch of annual snowfall on average.
    • The overall crime rate in McCalla is lower than that of the nation as a whole, making the city a good option for seniors who are looking for a safe community to spend their retirement years. On a 100-point scale with a low score representing less reported crime, the community's violent crime rate is 14.7, compared to the U.S. average of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 19.2, versus the national average of 35.4. 
    • The overall cost of living in McCalla is about 12% higher than the statewide average but on par with the national average, which may be a consideration for seniors who are living on a fixed income.
