Sweet home Alabama. With a thriving arts and culture scene, year-round golfing, and miles of sunny beaches to explore, this Southeastern state is an excellent choice for active adults seeking a convenient lifestyle with easy access to the attractions and services they care about. Just don’t expect a typical retirement community in Alabama. Life with Upside is entirely yours to define. We make it easy to indulge your passions, engage with your surroundings, and follow your own path – wherever it leads. Here’s how it works. Different from standard retirement communities in Alabama, many of which can feel sterile or institutional, Upside is a vast network of hand-picked apartments available in a wide variety of floorplans and sizes. As a member, you get to choose the apartment that fits your way of living in the location you want to be in. But the benefits of becoming an Upside member don’t stop here.
Tired of cleaning gutters or mowing the grass? Our aging-friendly apartments are perfect for folks who are ready to trade hedge clippers for a little extra time on the golf course, in the theater, on the beach, or otherwise enjoying the wonder of Alabama. Becoming an Upside member also entitles you to personalized monthly services, on-demand options, and a personal Upside Manager who acts as your concierge, connecting you to the activities and resources you want.
If you already love the state for its natural beauty and cultural landmarks, there’s one more reason to love senior living in Alabama: Tax breaks on retirement income. Alabama is a retirement-friendly state where Social Security income is not taxed (although withdrawals from retirement accounts are taxed in full). That means your retirement income will go further, giving you more flexibility to live the way you want. So go ahead – try that trendy new restaurant or take in an unforgettable show by your favorite acts.
From the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio to the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in Birmingham, the state’s contributions to popular music run deep. Whether you want to see the hottest national touring bands or one of Alabama’s home-grown heroes, senior living in Alabama is sweeter as an Upside member. Speaking of sweets, the dining options in Alabama are out-of-this-world good! Smoky BBQ. Elegant fine dining. Exciting craft breweries. World-class bakeries. When you sit down at a table in Alabama you’re in for a real treat.
