Independent Living Patio Homes

It means never settling for a place to call home. It means finding a home that allows you to let loose and follow your passions. It means the freedom to do what you want, when you want - without worrying about anything but how to fit everything into your schedule.

With maintenance-free living at Traditions of Athens’ Independent Living Patio Homes, you can pursue it all. Our community team does all the work for you, giving you the opportunity to shop with friends, visit your grandkids, or golf the day away. Whatever makes you happy, you can do it here.

Assisted Living

Residents receive a full complement of amenities and services, including housekeeping and maintenance services and three delicious chef-prepared meals each day served in a beautiful dining room. In addition to providing support, assisted living empowers seniors to remain engaged in living. Spacious studios, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartments are available.

Lifestyle Options

Traditions of Athens offers Independent Living Patio Homes & Assisted Living. Nestled in the heart of Athens, our residents experience and enjoy Alabama’s local culture, as well as Huntsville. Be it trips to baseball games, autumn’s beauty, local musical entertainment, or a play at the theatre, we create vibrant living for residents to live purposefully and experience a profound sense of belonging.

My mom has been there a year or so. The staff has been great, the activities great, the layout reminds me of a hotel on the beach-beautiful "front porch" area to enjoy the outdoors. I was concerned about her going to assisted living, but my fears have gone away as I have seen her here.
