    What to Consider About Memory Care in Tuscaloosa County

    Tuscaloosa County is located in the west-central region of Alabama and is home to over 200,000 people. The senior community here makes up nearly 13 percent of the population, and according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, almost 14 percent of these seniors who receive Medicare benefits are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    Tuscaloosa is home to four memory care facilities, including three in the city of Tuscaloosa and one in Northport. Like many memory care facilities in Alabama, these facilities are located within specialty care assisted living facilities. All assisted living facilities in this county that offer memory care are licensed by the Department of Public Health and separately certified by the Board of Health. 

    • Tuscaloosa County's air quality is very good, which may be beneficial for seniors with cardiovascular disease or respiratory illnesses. The American Lung Association gave the county an A for both short-term particle pollution and ozone pollution, as well as a passing score for annual particle pollution.
    • Tuscaloosa County's overall cost of living is about 7 percent lower than the national average and about 4 percent higher than the state average. On the other hand, healthcare expenses, including the cost of doctor's visits and hospital stays, are slightly higher than the national average and a little lower than the state average. Families with tight memory care budgets may find that their money goes further in Tuscaloosa County.
    • Alabama is fairly senior-friendly when it comes to taxes, which may enable families to put more money toward memory care costs in Tuscaloosa County. The state does not tax Social Security income or income from public or private pensions, though income from retirement accounts is fully taxable.
    • While winters in Tuscaloosa County are chilly with lows near 30 degrees, the region receives virtually no snow, which may make seasonal travel easy for families visiting loved ones in memory care here. Summers are very warm with highs in the 90s, and there is an average of 210 sunny days annually.
