Page Reviewed / Updated – February 14, 2023
Pell City, AL is located along the shores of Logan Martin Lake. It’s a mid-sized city of around 13,000 residents, 18% of whom are seniors. The cost of living is 8% lower than the state average, which is likely one of the reasons why Pell City is one of the fastest-growing cities in Alabama.
While Pell City offers a comfortable lakeside lifestyle with a low cost of living, the area also receives an average of 55 inches of rain yearly, and summers are notably hot and humid. However, these hot summers give way to comfortable fall temperatures perfect for enjoying the great outdoors.
Pell City’s long-term care costs aren’t recorded by Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, so averages are based on those of nearby Birmingham, where seniors pay an average of $4,028 per month for assisted living. This is higher than Alabama’s average of $3,503 but lower than the national average of $4,500. Despite higher-than-average assisted living costs, the overall low cost of living in Pell City still makes it an economical option for seniors.
