What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mobile

Assisted living facilities in Mobile and other parts of the state must follow regulations established by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Bureau of Health Provider Standards. The Board of Examiners of Assisted Living Administrators is responsible for licensing professionals who manage these facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mobile

  • Although health care expenses are about 3% higher than average, seniors in Mobile benefit from a very competitive cost of living that’s almost 20% lower than the national average. Housing and transportation are particularly affordable.
  • Seniors must consider tax rates when estimating their total cost of living. Although Mobile has a very high sales tax of 10%, retirement benefits are exempt from state income tax, and seniors may be able to deduct medical and dental expenses from their taxable income.
  • Mobile has a pleasant climate with summer highs of around 90 degrees and winter lows of around 40. Although rainfall levels are significantly higher than average, the area receives 220 days of sunshine, which gives residents plenty of time for outdoor recreation.
  • Crime rates in Mobile are higher than the state and national averages, with 650 incidents reported per 100,000 residents. Safety is typically less of a concern in assisted living facilities, which have 24-hour security and emergency call systems.
  • Health care access in Mobile is about average based on median prices and the number of physicians per capita. However, the city is home to several high-performing hospitals that specialize in treating heart failure, stroke and colon cancer.
  • Getting around town is easy thanks to the Mobile Transit System. Seniors qualify for discounted 60-cent fares on The Wave, and curb-to-curb transportation is available through the Mobility Assistance Program. Additionally, most assisted living facilities provide transportation.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Mobile

Public financial aid for assisted living is not available in the state of Alabama. Medicaid and non-Medicaid programs will not cover the cost of assisted living. Recipients of Social Security Income (SSI) may be eligible for a supplement to help pay for other types of housing, but the supplements do not cover ALRs. For assisted living, residents must use personal resources or veterans benefits.
