Overview of Alabama Assisted LivingAlabama is often called “the Heart of Dixie,” a name referring to the state’s geographical location in the center (or heart) of the South. With a mild year-round climate and infusion of Southern charm, it won’t take long for seniors who choose assisted living in Alabama to fall in love with the “Yellowhammer State.” Having such extensive involvement in the Civil War and later the Civil Rights Movement, Alabama is perhaps most famous for its historical past. History buffs will enjoy a trip to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute or Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery.
