What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sheffield

Sheffield is a small scenic town along the Tennessee River that features historic and cultural attractions, like the Jackson Highway Studio pictured on a Cher album. The town is home to less than 10,000 people and has a relatively large senior population, with nearly 20 percent of residents being 65 or older. 

Sheffield contains two assisted living facilities (ALFs) to accommodate seniors, with seven others situated a short distance away in towns such as Florence and Killen. ALFs throughout Alabama help two or more residents with personal care and activities. Typically, three people reside in family-style settings, while group settings serve up to 16 people.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sheffield

  • Seniors can expect mild winters in Sheffield, which sees an average low temperature of 30 degrees Fahrenheit and less than two inches of snow per year. The city gets more rain than the national average, but it also has fewer days of precipitation. Sheffield averages 207 sunny days per year and an average July high of 90 degrees.

  • Seniors might save money by living in Sheffield, as the total cost of living is 22 percent less than the U.S. average and 11 percent less than the state average. Housing costs are significantly lower than average in Sheffield.

  • Residents of this area may have safety concerns, however, because Sheffield has an abnormally high crime rate for a community of its size. The odds of victimization from property and violent crimes combined is 1 in 20. The city experiences more crime than 84 percent of towns in Alabama. 

  • Public transportation is available by request with the Northern Alabama Council of Local Governments (NACOLG), which offers Dial-A-Ride service to both urban and rural areas locally.

  • Sheffield has an array of community resources for seniors, including participation in a statewide prescription assistance program, a Senior Employment program, family-friendly community events, such as bake sales, and seven senior centers arranged locally within Colbert County.
