    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Jackson

    Located roughly halfway between Memphis and Nashville, Jackson is a small city of about 66,000 residents, 14 percent of whom are 65 years or older. Seniors in the area who need or desire assisted living care can choose among nine assisted living facilities in Jackson.

    In Jackson, as well as the rest of Tennessee, assisted living facilities are classified as either assisted care living facilities (ACLF) or residential homes for the aged. The two options are somewhat similar, but ACLFs typically offer a higher level of care. Both are regulated by the Tennessee Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Jackson

    • The cost of living in Jackson is 11 percent lower than the national average, which helps adults on a fixed income enjoy a little extra spending money. While healthcare costs more than average in Jackson, other items that are common staple purchases for seniors, such as groceries and utilities, are less expensive.
    • Jackson has a violent crime rate of 54 out of 100 and a property crime rate of 63.8 out of 100. These numbers are substantially higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Seniors who are concerned about their personal safety may want to be wary, but it should be noted that most assisted living facilities offer an abundance of security measures to keep residents safe.
    • The climate in Jackson is ideal for seniors who enjoy watching the seasons change. The summers are hot, with average July highs above 90, while the low temperatures in January average below 30. The city gets 15 more inches of annual rain than the national average.
    • Jackson's air quality is 54 out of 100 (100 is best). This is slightly below the national average of 58 but probably not too much cause for concern unless a senior has severe asthma or breathing difficulties.
    • The Jackson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Public transportation is limited in the Jackson area, although the Jackson Transit Authority provides limited bus services around the city.
